abstract

  • Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging scans demonstrated enlargement of the subarachnoid space in the posterior fossa and disappearance of the syringobulbia. There has been no recurrence of intractable hiccups and syringobulbia in 6 months after surgery. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brainstem is an important diagnostic procedure for intractable hiccups, because syringobulbia associated with a Chiari malformation represents a surgically treatable disorder, although the incidence is low.
