Abstract

Moderately severe neck injury or disease may be associated with negative routine radiographs. Three cases are presented which show small, smooth, lucent clefts adjacent to the vertebral body end-plate anteriorly, seen only on the extension lateral view. This was the only radiographic sign of cervical injury or disease. An explanation of the finding is given and it is distinguished from the well known vacuum phenomena of disc degeneration.
