ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Multiple C1 fractures

History: 21 yo WM was entering the surf when a wave crashed directly on top of him. Patient was violently toppled over and struck his head on the sandy shore. Patient denies loss of consciousness or aspiration. He immediately felt bilateral paracervical neck pain upon impact on his head onto the shore. Patient emerged from the ocean under own strength and without any other complaints. He was promptly taken to the ED in ambulance without cervical spine precautions.

Findings: C-spine CT- multiple fractures on C1, bilateral posterior ring, right anterior ring. Fragmentation on right side of C1 into spinal canal, spinal cord intact. All other cervical vertebrae intact and without compromise.

Ddx: Multiple C1 fractures

Exam: Tender to palpation over C1-C3, no neurological deficits. No other significant findings

No MeSH data available.
