Abstract

An elderly Caucasian woman presented with a cervical myelopathy due to cervical spinal cord compression posteriorly by calcified ligamentum flavum and anteriorly by cervical osteophytic bars. Although recognized in the Japanese population, calcification of the ligamentum flavum as a cause of cervical myelopathy is very rare in Caucasians, with only one case previously reported.
