BHATTA, AD  and  GOVENDER, S. Hyperextension at the cervicodorsal junction in osteogenesis imperfecta - a case report. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.1, pp.22-24. ISSN 2309-8309.

Hyperextension at the cervico-dorsal (CD) junction is rare in osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) with no cases being reported in the literature. We report a three-year-old child with OI (Sillence type III2) who presented with: hyperextension at CD junction; low bone mass; thoracolumbar kyphosis; bilateral anterolateral bowing of femora; and failure to thrive.

Keywords : hyperextension; cervico-dorsal junction; osteogenesis imperfecta.
