Dandy-Walker syndrome is a neurological disorder caused by an unusual formation between the cerebellum and the fluid-filled spaces around it. The cerebellum is in the back part of the brain and controls movement. The disorder is sometimes associated with an absence of the corpus callosum, which is the area made up of nerve fibers connecting the two sides of the brain. Symptoms of Dandy-Walker syndrome may include:
Consider participating in a clinical trial so clinicians and scientists can learn more about Dandy-Walker syndrome and related disorders. Clinical research uses human volunteers to help researchers learn more about a disorder and perhaps find better ways to safely detect, treat, or prevent disease.
