Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An unusual case of atlanto-axial rotational limitation secondary to an osteoid osteoma of the axis is presented. Transoral microsurgical resection followed by physical therapy improved the clinical symptoms. This case illustrates several unique problems within the cervical spine as well as the efficacy of the transoral approach to the axis.
