Neurocutaneous melanosis is a rare congenital disorder characterized by the presence of large or multiple congenital melanocytic cutaneous nevi associated with intracranial leptomeningeal melanocytosis. An association with Dandy-Walker malformation has been reported in 8-10% of children with neurocutaneous melanosis. [1] The main objective of this case report is to present the rare association as only few cases have been reported in literature, besides, as well, to discuss this as a case that appeared to be as meningitis with posterior fossa cystic malformation but turned out as neurocutaneous melanosis with Dandy-Walker malformation. In addition, we wanted to highlight the importance of correlating clinical examination findings with imaging findings and not limiting to imaging findings alone.
