Abstract
두 개의 전방결절 사이의 이소성 교합은 드문 선천성 기형으로 경추 측면 사진에서 척추체 앞쪽으로 투영되는 뼈대가 보일 때 꼭 고려해 보아야 하는 감별진단이다. 우리는 제5번, 6번 경추 가로돌기에서 연장된 전방결절이 보였던 증례를 보고하고자 한다. 이러한 소견은 아마도 최하경추 위의 과잉경추늑골일 것으로 추정된다. Aberrant articulation between two anterior tubercles is a rare congenital anomaly that should be considered for patients showing a bony projection anterior to the vertebral body on a lateral radiograph of the cervical spine. We present a case of an elongation of the anterior tubercles of the transverse processes of both the fifth and sixth cervical vertebrae. This finding is probably a form of supernumerary cervical rib developing at a level above the lowest cervical spine.
