What the heck is Tonsillar Ectopia? Is it the same as Chiari Malformation?

Many of us got the Tonsillar Ectopia diagnoses what does it mean?

Ran across this website today, and I was so glad it explains it very well.


Abby...my understanding that is the same as Chiari.....tonsil herniation.

Hope you are well!!




Great question??? are these so called 'medical professionals' trying to mess with us!!!LOL

From what I have read...You can have a Tonsillar Ectopia with any organ. They call it a Cerebral Tonsillar-Ectopia when they are discussing a Chiari Malformation.
