Case: A 22-year-old skeletally mature man with scoliosis accompanied by syringomyelia associated with Chiari malformation type 1 was presented to our hospital. Because the maximal syrinx/cord ratio was small, and he had no neurological deficit, he underwent corrective surgery without the treatment of the syringomyelia. Conclusion: The scoliosis was corrected without any neurological complications. Magnetic resonance imaging taken 8 days after the surgery showed the reduction of the size of the syringomyelia. The syringomyelia almost disappeared at the 8-year follow-up.
