The palm tree cervical spine--a normal anatomical variant.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  854146     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of "palm tree" cervical spine with cervical spondylitic myelopathy is described. It is shown that this upward course of the nerve roots over the pedicle is a variant of normal anatomy, not described in standard textbooks and that this variation may be seen on myelograms. The futility of attempting to correct the variation is described.
