Figure 1: A 26-year-old male patient presented with a 1-year history of progressive pain in the neck, weakness of both arms and legs, and numbness and tingling in the fingers. (a and b) Sagittal T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography scans demonstrate an invagination of the odontoid process through the foramen magnum with intramedullary hyperintense signals resulting from compression of the spinal cord. (c and d) Postoperative sagittal plane magnetic resonance and computed tomography images show adequate odontoidectomy and decompression of the spinal cord. (e) The patient exhibits neurological recovery at the 9-month follow-up examination
