A case of posterior atlanto-axial subluxation is presented, together with a survey of previously reported cases. The patient's history suggested affection of the vertebral artery, and involvement of the medulla, but there were no physical signs of such. The patient was treated with posterior atlanto-axial fixation with good results.
