Hi there. Ran across your post after I googled Chiari Malformation and Granuloma Annulare. I have had 4 brain surgeries and can't seem to get better. I have had this skin disorder since early childhood and just wondered if you were ever told this was a result of some sort of Connective Tissue disorder such as EDS and als Chiari being the result of such. Thanks in advance. Just have never met anyone with the Granuloma Annulare and especially someone who also has Chiari!
