Click 35-year-old male with congenital absence of the right C6 pedicle. Axial computed tomography of the cervical spine shows absence of the right pedicle of C6 (slice position 47). The adjacent bones, in particular the right articular pillar, are well corticated with no fracture lines or adjacent soft tissue swelling to suggest an acute injury. The absence of the pedicle is also associated with dorsal defect of the right foramen transversorium at the same level.

Click 35-year-old male with congenital absence of the right C6 pedicle. Coronal reformatted computed tomography of the cervical spine shows absence of the right pedicle of C6 (slice position 47). The adjacent bones, in particular the right articular pillar, are well corticated with no fracture lines or adjacent soft tissue swelling to suggest an acute injury. The absence of the pedicle is also associated with dorsal defect of the right foramen transversorium at the same level.
