Spanish term or phrase: enclavamiento de amígdalas cerebelosas
It appears as the cause of death in a Peruvian death certificate. What would be the translation into English? (I specially have difficulty with the word "enclavamiento")
Thank you

cerebellar tonsillar herniation
Explanation:
Tonsillar herniation occurs in Arnold Chiari malformation. The presence of Chiari I malformation is defined radiologically by the amount of herniation of the tonsils through opening in the base of the skull. The web site cited has images and extensive documentation of the condition.
