The cranio-vertebral anomalies with associated myelopathy have received sufficient interest during recent years. Attention to its existence in India was for the first time drawn by Wadia (1960) when he reported 6 cases. Bharucha and Dastur (1964) subsequently detailed the neurological manifestations in their 40 cases with this defect. Dastur, Wadia, Desai and Sinh (1965) described the pathology, pathogenesis and clinical correlations based on 6 operative and autopsied cases. Srinivasan, Balasubramaniam and Ramamurthi (1967) reported their experience of 24 patients and Wadia (1967), in a greater detail, described myelopathic complications in 28 patients having congenital atlantoaxial dislocation, along with the results of surgical treatment. In the present communication, we report our experiences of 26 patients, 10 of whom having progressive myelopathy were subjected to surgery.
