Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS) is defined as congenital fusion of two or more cervical vertebrae and patients with KFS are frequently asymptomatic. However, these patients are especially prone to cervical cord injury after a minor fall or a major traumatic episode. We report an unusual case of KFS where the patient had disc prolapse between two Klippel-Feil segments and discuss the difficulties in the management of this case.
