A 49-year-old male presented with neck pain and deformity following an industrial accident sustained two months back. His neurology was normal except for a minimal weakness in left biceps (grade 4/5). Radiographs, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomographic scan revealed fracture dislocation of C2-C3 with significant lateral translation of C2 over C3 without disc herniation. In view of unsuccessful closed reduction and absent disc herniation at the level of dislocation, a posterior only reduction, stabilisation and fusion with Iso-C 3D computer navigation-assisted cervical pedicle screw fixation with transverse rod-screw construct was performed. At 6 months followup the patient was completely relieved of his symptoms and was able to return to his previous occupation. The rare case is reported for the management by Iso-C 3D computer navigation assisted cervical pedicle screw fixation and reduction with transverse rod-screw construct at each involved level.
