Peduncular hallucinosis following a transoral odontoidectomy for cranio-vertebral junction malformation. A case report.

Abstract

This is a case report of a sixty-two years old man suffering from a cranio-vertebral malformation whose dens epistrophei was removed through a transoral approach. During the postoperative course, he experienced a transient peduncular hallucinosis probably caused by surgical trauma on his brainstem. The possible physiopathological, etiopathological, clinical, and therapeutic aspects of this rare phenomenon are discussed.
