About this section


NINDS:44 Dandy-Walker Syndrome is a congenital brain malformation involving the cerebellum (an area at the back of the brain that controls movement) and the fluid-filled spaces around it. The key features of this syndrome are an enlargement of the fourth ventricle (a small channel that allows fluid to flow freely between the upper and lower areas of the brain and spinal cord), a partial or complete absence of the area of the brain between the two cerebellar hemispheres (cerebellar vermis), and cyst formation near the lowest part of the skull. An increase in the size of the fluid spaces surrounding the brain as well as an increase in pressure may also be present.

MalaCards based summary: Dandy-Walker Syndrome, also known as dandy-walker malformation, is related to osteopetrosis and thrombocytopenia, and has symptoms including hydrocephalus, nystagmus and elevated imprint of the transverse sinuses. An important gene associated with Dandy-Walker Syndrome is DWS (dandy-walker syndrome), and among its related pathways is Primary immunodeficiency. The compounds sulfolipid i and sandoglobulin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, cerebellum and spinal cord.

Genetics Home Reference:23 Dandy-Walker syndrome is a condition that affects brain development, primarily development of the part of the brain that coordinates movement (the cerebellum). In individuals with this condition, various parts of the cerebellum develop abnormally, resulting in malformations that can be observed with medical imaging. The central part of the cerebellum, known as the vermis, is absent or very small. Cysts form in the fourth ventricle, which is a fluid-filled cavity between the brainstem and the cerebellum, causing the ventricle to enlarge. The part of the skull that contains the cerebellum and the brainstem, called the posterior fossa, is abnormally large. These abnormalities often result in problems with movement, coordination, intellect, and other neurological functions.
