Hello,

If no other problems such as meningocele, there is no need for treatment. Follow up clinically and by imaging. If meningocele present then surgery may be necessary. Cerebellar ectopia also should be considered.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
