Question: I really need to know if Chiari can be caused due to being abused as a child? Patty

Answer: Dear Patty,

Arnold-Chiari malformation is a congenital anomaly, which means that is present at birth and cannot be caused by abuse. Many people that suffer from this condition do not see any symptoms till early adulthood.
