The clinical characteristics of pediatric scoliosis associated with syringomyelia have been reported in previous studies, but scoliosis associated with syringomyelia in adults is rarely treated, and there is a paucity of detailed studies. In the present study of adult syringomyelia associated with Chiari malformation Type I, the authors investigated the relationships among the syrinx, scoliosis, and neurological data.
