ABSTRACT
The article describes a case in which the os odontoideum arises as a sequence of posttraumatic displacement of the ossiculum terminale, as determined using serial high-resolution computed tomography in a five-year-old male patient. The boy sustained a blow to the buttocks after a fall from a slide. On the basis of computed tomography, an atlantoaxial rotary subluxation was diagnosed. A halo-brace immobilization was applied to the patient, with the neck held in position of relative extension.
