Hi, Your query that out of 4 children product of consanguinous parentage, 3 children have growth abnormality and in addition elder one has Arnold chiari malformation1 that is tonsillar herniation .
Arnold chiari malformation is a development abnormality , there is no relation to growth abnormalities .However if child has asssociated hydrocephalus and compression of hypothalomo pituitary tract growth of the child can be affected
