Congenital defects ef posterier arch of the atlas: A case report

Our aim was to describe an unusual congenital anomaly of atlas and to emphasize its clinical significance. A 43-year old woman presented with occipital headache that was worse with hyperextension of neck. Patient denied any neck pain and other neurological complain. On examination, the only positive finding on physical examination was moderate pain at the upper cervical and occipital region throughout neck extension. The cranial nerve examination was unremarkable, and motor and sensory findings were normal. Plain cervical radiographs revealed bilateral defects in the posterior arch of atlas. Computed tomography scans in flexion and extension positions showed no displacement or inward mobility of the posterior tubercle during extension of the cervical spine. No evidence of compression of the spinal cord was detected on magnetic resonance imaging. Congenital anomalies of the posterior arch of the atlas are very uncommon and usually asymptomatic. Neurological presentations depend on type of defect of posterior arch of atlas. It is crucial to recognize this defect to prevent major neurological deficits.

Our aim was to describe an unusual congenital anomaly of atlas and to emphasize its clinical significance. A 43-year old woman presented with occipital headache that was worse with hyperextension of neck. Patient denied any neck pain and other neurological complain. On examination, the only positive finding on physical examination was moderate pain at the upper cervical and occipital region throughout neck extension. The cranial nerve examination was unremarkable, and motor and sensory findings were normal. Plain cervical radiographs revealed bilateral defects in the posterior arch of atlas. Computed tomography scans in flexion and extension positions showed no displacement or inward mobility of the posterior tubercle during extension of the cervical spine. No evidence of compression of the spinal cord was detected on magnetic resonance imaging. Congenital anomalies of the posterior arch of the atlas are very uncommon and usually asymptomatic. Neurological presentations depend on type of defect of posterior arch of atlas. It is crucial to recognize this defect to prevent major neurological deficits.
