Abstract

A distinct group of spinal cord injuries, mainly seen in the pediatric age group, occurs without any radiographic evidence of vertebral fracture-dislocation. 1, 5 Most of these spinal cord injuries are associated with common mechanisms of injury such as falls and recreational, motor vehicular, and athletic accidents.1 Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has significantly advanced the study of such injuries by its depiction of ligamentous or disc disruption and by enabling imaging of the spinal cord itself.6.
