Trap in severe trauma: the rotary atlantoaxial dislocation.

Abstract : We reported the case of asymptomatic traumatic atlantoaxial dislocation in a 14-year-old woman. Clinical diagnosis of this uncommon dislocation is difficult and often made late. The early diagnosis by CT scan is necessary to avoid secondary aggravation. Integrity of the transverse ligament of the atlas is a determining factor for atlantoaxial stability and allows orthopaedic treatment after reduction using moderate traction on the head.
