Basilar invagination is deformity of osseous structures in the base of the skul region at the foramenmag num region. The diagnosis of this entity primarily depends upon the radiology.
Basilar Invagination is cranio vertebral junction anomaly of the osseous structure seen as prolapse of odontoid processing of oramen Magnum with flattening of clivus. It is mostly congenital whereas basilar impression is upward displacement of Dens due to softening of the bones of the skul base and is mostly acquired. The diagnosis primarily depends upon the radiology.
We present acase ofa 8year old patient presenting with at axiavertigo and pain in The neck MRIT2W images shows upward prolapse of odontoid into for a men Magnum within dentation of medulaoblongata. McRaeline, Chamberlaineline and Mc Gregorlineare showing odontoid process 3mm, >5mm and >4.5mm respectively, Hence diagnosis of basilar invagination was made [1- 6].
Basilar Invagination is craniovertebral junction anomalyseen as prolapse of Odontoid process into for a men Magnum with flattening of clivus. It is mostly Congenital where as basilar impression is upward displacement of Dens due to Softening of the bones of the skul base and is mostly acquired. Patient presents Depending upon crowding and mass effect caused with headache, neckpain, vertigo, Cranial Nerve deficit, lower limb at axia and other neurological signs caused by Syring ohydromylia (Figure 1).

McRaeline (d) Chamberlaineline (e) and Mc Gregorline (f) are showingodontoid process 3mm,>5mm and>4.5mm respectively, hencediagnosis of basilar invagination was made.
