Abstract

There is a wide range of congenital anomalies of the posterior fossa. Of these, absence of cerebellar components seems to exist on a spectrum, much like anomalies seen with the more frequently encountered Dandy–Walker malformation. Here, we present a rare case of cerebellar agenesis, as seen at our institution, which falls on the extreme side of the spectrum. We also discuss normal and aberrant posterior fossa development, established or hypothesized genetic causes of such development, and implications on cerebellar function.
