BACKGROUND: Osteopetrosis (OP) is a varied clinical condition caused by malfunction or insufficient development of osteoclasts, or both. Neurologic findings can occur because of osteopetrotic conditions restricting neural foramina through which the spinal cord, cranial nerves, or major vascular structures traverse the skull. Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a well-documented condition with OP. However, Chiari I malformation is rarely reported concomitantly with OP.
