Figure 1: (a and b) X-ray of the cervical spine shows a gross kyphotic deformity at C2-4 and increased atlantodental interval on flexion (B) (c) CT of the cervical spine showed kyphotic deformity due to anterior wedging of C2-4 vertebrae. The vertebral bodies were fused to each other anteriorly. Anterior osteophytes are seen between C4 and C5 (yellow arrow). The canal diameter is good at the level of kyphotic deformity. It is narrow at C4-5 level and narrowest at C1-2 (d) MRI shows compression at the craniovertebral junction (yellow arrow) with cord changes and cervical syrinx. The canal is normal at the level of kyphosis (e) postoperative CT showing reduction of the atlantoaxial dislocation
