Figure 1: A 55-year-old man victim of fall from the height with normal neurological examination. (a) A distractive injury can be clearly seen at C5-C6 in a lateral X-ray with facet joints subluxation (bilateral perched facet joints). (b) A sagittal T2 sequence magnetic resonance imaging with hypersignal in the posterior cervical ligaments without signal changes in the spinal cord. The Subaxial Injury Classification score was: 3 points (distractive injury) + 2 points (disco-ligamentous complex injury) + 0 points (intact) = 5 points - surgical treatment was performed
