and the C-3 lamina were removed. The results of a pathological examination were consistent with an os-teochondroma. The postoperative CT scan demonstrated a gross-total resection with stable sagittal alignment. F ig . 1. Lateral cervical radiograph showing the calcified posterior spinal mass. F ig . 2. Axial CT scan (A) and coronal T 1 -weighted enhanced magnetic resonance image (B) demonstrating a large, cystic, multi-lobulated, calcified, heterogeneously enhancing mass arising from the lamina of C-3.

fusion. Radiographic findings obtained postoperatively and at follow up were used to determine if the following results occurred: 1) solid bone fusion from C-1 to C-2 or occiput to C-2; 2) unexpected inclusion of C-3 into the fusion mass; 3) osteophyte formation and instability of the subaxial cervical spine; 4) sagittal alignment and curvature of the cervical spine; and 5) vertical growth of both the fusion mass and the complete cervical spine. Statistical comparisons were calculated using the Student t-test, and probability values less than 0.05 were considered
