Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract We describe a case with transient cortical blindness after trauma with no obvious structural damage to the vertebral artery in the presence of a C2 spondylolisthesis. A patient complaining of blindness in a setting of polytrauma should always alert the possibility of a cervical spine injury with vertebral artery ischaemia.
