Chihuahuas Are Among Toy Breeds Affected by Syringomyelia May 1, 2011

Syringomyelia is a disorder of the central nervous system that commonly occurs in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Most Cavaliers are believed to have SM secondary to Chiari-like malformation (CM), a condition in which the brain is too big for the skull, causing it to be crushed and pushed out of the foramen magnum, the funnel-like opening to the vertebral canal. This obstructs the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in and out of the skull, causing fluid to accumulate in the spinal cord. While it is not known how widespread SM is in Chihuahuas, multiple cases have been reported. Other affected toy breeds include Brussels Griffon, Maltese, Pomeranians and Yorkshire Terriers.
