✓ The authors report a very rare case of high cervical ossification of the ligamentum flavum (OLF) in a 40-year-old woman who developed an intractable cough after a traffic accident. The patient's symptoms subsided immediately after decompressive laminectomy and removal of the lesion. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first reported case of high cervical OLF in a patient who presented with a cough. The pathophysiological mechanism underlying the cough was determined to be symptomatic of high cervical spine OLF.
