Abstract

The Dandy-Walker variant is a milder form of the Dandy-Walker Complex (DWC) with less severe radiological abnormalities. We describe a 13-year old girl with limited intellectual capacity who presented with clinical features of schizophrenia, and who was diagnosed with the Dandy-Walker variant during organic screening for first episode psychosis.
