Arnold Chiari Malfomation

My husband was born with Arnold Chiari Malfomation (stage1) and I would just like to know what the chances are that our children (if we decide to have any) will be born with the same. My husband's father was also born with ACM.

As far as I know the recurrence rate is low. However, with the family history, it could be part of a syndrome. I would suggest that you ask the Geneticist.
