Abstract

Vertebral hemangioma is a common and usually benign lesion encountered on routine radiographic studies. We report the unusual case of a woman who sustained a displaced fracture of a hemangiomatous odontoid after minimal trauma. Good healing was accomplished with external halo bracing alone.
