Is there a cure for Dany walker syndrome ? I was wondering because my sisters baby died yesterday from this. And he was only two days old

Dandy walker syndrome is a malformation of the brain, and my best guess on this is that since it has to do with the brain there is probablly not much that can be done. But i am very sorry about your familys loss. :(

Dud you mean Dandy Walker syndrome? Looks like they can put in a shunt to reduce swelling on the brain.

Yes. That's it, but I don't think they ever did that. It's brain showed to be smooth on the MRI. So I guess it was too late to do anything anyways. But thanks for letting me know.
