Abstract (provisional) The complete article is available as a provisional
PDF. The fully formatted PDF and HTML versions are in production. We present a case of a 35-year-old active rugby player presenting with a history of recurrent burner syndrome thought secondary to an osteoblastoma involving the posterior arch of the atlas. Radiographically, the lesion had features typical for a large osteoid osteoma or osteoblastoma, including osseous expansion, peripheral sclerosis and bony hypertrophy, internal lucency, and even suggestion of a central nidus. The patient subsequently underwent an en bloc resection of the posterior atlas via a standard posterior approach. The surgery revealed very good clinical results.
In this report, we will discuss in detail, the presentation, treatment, and return to play recommendations involving this patient. Journal of Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Injury Volume 2
