This is a report of two patients who were diagnosed to have NF-1. The patients had severe dystrophic soft tissue and bone changes leading to craniovertebral junction and subaxial cervical spinal instability and deformity. Both the patients underwent atlantoaxial and subaxial cervical spinal stabilization. No bone, soft tissue or tumor resection was done for decompression. Both patients had gratifying clinical recovery. Follow-up in both the patients is more than 12 months.
