CONGENITAL ABSENCE OF THE ODONTOID PROCESS RESULTING IN DISLOCATION OF THE ATLAS ON THE AXIS.

ROBERTS, SUMNER MEADE
The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery: October 1933
Case Report

An unusual congenital abnormality, absence of the odontoid process, is described. This deformity resulted in a backward dislocation of the atlas on the axis. The dislocation was reduced, but, without a stabilizing operation, it may readily recur and such a recurrence may conceivably be fatal.
