Disappearing bone disease and Chiari I malformation.
Gorham's disease is a rare disorder in which massive osteolysis occurs within bone, and therefore earns its historical name: disappearing bone disease. We describe a case of Chiari I malformation in a patient with this rare disorder, with treatment consisting of a suboccipital craniectomy, C1 laminectomy, and duraplasty for Chiari decompression.
