Background and Aim: C1-C2 segmentation defect has rarely been reported. Clinical onset occurs usually in the first years of life, but sometimes in the following. Treatment is still an argument of debate. Case Report: This case report describes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of a cervical stenosis due to a C1-C2 deformity treated with a midline laminectomy without fusion. Conclusion: There are no clear indications to what the treatment options might be, but at 1-month clinical follow-up, the patient had recovered walking autonomy and partially improved fine finger movements.
