    Three cases of cerebellar ectopia first producing symptoms in adult life are reported. This potentially remediable anomaly may not be suspected in adults, in whom associated congenital bony abnormalities of the skull and cervical spine are often absent. In these cases diagnosis depends on radiological contrast studies; in particular it is important to examine the cervical canal in the prone and supine positions.
