The incidence of Dandy-Walker syndrome is low among the newborns: from 1: 5,000 to 1: 25,000. Boys are more likely to suffer the syndrome.

Dandy-Walker syndrome is a defect in brain development, which is characterized by a triad of signs:

• Hypoplasia of the worm (and hemispheres) of the cerebellum

• enlargement of the third ventricle before the formation of the posterior cranial fossa cyst due to its increase, associated with the displacement of the lateral sinuses and the cerebellar nostrils

• internal hydrocephalus.

The characteristics of the Dandy-Walker malformation are:

• muscle weakness

• atrophy of the lower limbs

• bilateral anterior polar cataract
