This report describes a very rare Dandy–Walker malformation (DWM) associated with neurofibromatosis (NF) and bony defect over torcula emphasizing the role of meticulous follow-up for asymptomatic DWM. The clinical aspects of an adolescent patient with undiagnosed DWM who was asymptomatic until the age of 14 years are being discussed. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were revealed DWM. To our knowledge, this is the first report from India that describes a patient who has been diagnosed with DWM with associated NF with bony defect over torcula creating a management dilemma.
