Congenital anomalies resulting in serious disorders often accompany pathology of the brain. The results of clinical observation of the patient with significant malformation of the central nervous system - Dandy-Walker syndrome, have been presented in this paper. Dandy-Walker syndrome occurs in one out of every 25,000 live births but is still not fully understood.
