A 45 year old male presented with features of high cervical cord compressive rediculo myelopathy. MRI showed type II basilar invagination (Dejerine Type) [Figure:1] in the form of thickened foramen magnum (opisthion) with upwardly convex paramedian occiput and foramen magnum. Evidence of persistence of the spheno-occipital synchondrosis along with basilar invagination causing foramen magnum stenosis (AP diameter-2.5 cm) [Figure:2]. The cervical cord shows compressive myelopathy in the form of atrophy with hyperintense signals due to disc protrusion at C3-C4 to C5-C6 [Figure:3], which is more prominent at C3-C4 level. The CSF subarachnoid space was narrow from C1 to C6 [Figure:4].
