ABSTRACT
Cervical spondylolysis is a rare vertebral anomaly defined as a corticated cleft between the superior and inferior articular pillar, the cervical equivalent of the pars interarticularis in the lumbar spine. Recognition of this anomaly and differentiation from acute traumatic fractures is of great importance because this lesion is usually diagnosed in patients after minor trauma or as an incidental finding on routine radiographs. The authors present two cases of this anomaly.
Key Words: Cervical spine; Spondylolysis; Spondylisthesis
