Figure 1: A 59-year-old woman suffered a motor vehicle accident. She was intubated at the scene. Her neurological examination showed a motor strength of 1/5 in the upper extremities and 3/5 in the lower extremities. Sagittal T2-weighted sequence magnetic resonance imaging of the cervical spine demonstrating a Type III odontoid fracture with posterior subluxation causing compression of the cervicomedullary junction with upper cervical spine signal cord change
