Can chiari be causes by drug use?
I know that people say that chiari is hereditary, but no one in the family except my daughter has it.  She is in her 30s and more and more we are realizing that this may have been going on since birth.  What im curious about is whether a parents drug use (fathers) could have caused this?
Thx.

  Hi....I do not know if there is a link to Chiari in that manor....I would more likely feel there is a family connection. Not everyone with Chiari has symptoms that lead to a DX....some can have it and never need treatment ....and may never know they have it.

A Congenital condition is just that....I have a cousin that has spina bifida....no one in my immediate family is Dx with it either....that does not mean someone else does not have it....


U can not always know how or why and there is not place to point to.....she has it, and that is it for now,
