Figure 1: The patient presented with h/o fall from height 1 day prior to date of MRI. T2 sagittal (a) and T2*-GRE (b) MR images reveal fracture dislocation at C6-7 level with grade 4 spondylolisthesis of C6 over C7 with fracture of C6 and D3 and contusion of cord involving about 6.1 cm long segment with sizable focus of hemorrhage with severe cord compression. On clinical exam AIS at admission was A, on discharge no improvement was noted. Thus involvement of long segment of cord, presence of sizable focus of hemorrhage with severe cord compression were bad prognostic indicator for high-grade AIS at admission and no recovery of patient at discharge
