  Title Unstable os odontoideum in young children
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 1993 Sep;37(3):141-144
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Os odontoideum is a rare anomaly of the odontoid process. When unstable, it can be a source of neck pain that can result in serious neurological injury. In young children, the presence of a transverse lucency at the base of the dens represents the normal developing growth plate. However, os odontoideum should be considered in the differential diagnosis in a child with recurrent or persistent neck pain. A case of an unstable os odontoideum in a two-year-old child is presented to illustrate this point.
