A 34-year-old lady presented with gradual onset weakness of right side of the body and tingling sensation in right upper limb for the past one month. Motor system examination revealed that she had mild elbow flexion weakness and hand grip weakness bilaterally, more on the right side. Plantar reflex was bilaterally extensor and all the deep tendon reflexes were exaggerated. Sensory system examination was normal. A Computed Tomogram (CT) scan and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of the cervical spine was performed which showed dystopic os odontoideum. It is a rare cause of atlanto-axial instability. There are various cranio-vertebral junction anomalies from which it needs to be differentiated radiologically, including orthotopic os odontoideum, persistent os terminale, accessory ossicle of anterior arch of atlas and assimilation of atlas.
