Malformations of cortical development refer to neuronal migrational abnormalities which arise in utero during migration of neuroblasts and glioblasts traveling from the periventricular region to the cortical plate along radially oriented glial fibers in an "inside-out" fashion.
Congenital brain malformations occur as a result of embryogenesis impairment and present as an anatomic defect or destructive brain lesion (Arendt 1968; Barkovich 2000; DeMyer 1971; Glenn and Barkovich 2006; Harwood-Nash et al. 1976; Polianker et al 1965; van de. . 1976; Polianker et al 1965; van der Knaap et al. 2006). It is very difficult to make a diagnosis of congenital brain malformation, based on clinical findings, and use of CT and MRI is essential in these cases.
Chiari malformations; Dandy–Walker malformations; caudal regression syndrome; closed neural tube defects; congenital brain anomalies; congenital spine anomalies; hydrocephalus; neuronal migration anomalies; open neural tube defects; spinal lipoma.
There are still several areas of poor knowledge, confusion, and controversy. Pathogenesis in some cases is not clearly understood, and definitions and limits among different diseases also unclear.

Congenital abnormalities, called malformations, are conditions affecting the form and function of the nervous system
Congenital abnormalities, called malformations, are conditions affecting the form and function of the nervous system. There are numerous variations of congenital malformations of the bone and soft tissue of the head and spine, including neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, encephaloceles, Chiari malformations and arachnoid cysts.
