We report the first two fatal cases of sudden unprovoked cardiorespiratory arrest in children with previously undiagnosed Arnold-Chiari type 1 malformation. This diagnosis should be considered in children with unexplained cardiorespiratory arrest. The risk of sudden death in Arnold-Chiari type 1 malformation reinforces the indication for early neurosurgical procedure.
