Gunshot wound to the upper cervical spine leading to instability.

Int J Clin Exp Med. 2014;7(3):789-91

Abstract
Gunshot wounds (GSW) to the cervical spine leading to instability are rare. Also, the presence of vital vascular and neurological structures in the surround area lead to death or severe disability in the vast majority of cases. In this brief report, we present a rare case of C1 fracture due to GSW leading to instability of the atlanto-occipital joint in a neurologically intact patient.
