Fracture of the odontoid process is the most common type of cervical spine fracture in elderly patients (i.e. population over the age of 70 years), which can lead to disability or death. The therapeutic management depends on imaging findings and patient’s general condition. The authors present a case of a 71-year-old patient diagnosed with odontoid fracture based on cervical spine computed tomography, who received surgical treatment in the Department of Neurosurgery of the Regional Medical Centre in Opole. The problem of odontoid fractures in the elderly has been a subject of a comprehensive discussion.

Złamanie zęba obrotnika to najczęściej występujący rodzaj złamania kręgosłupa szyjnego u starszych pacjentów (tj. u osób powyżej 70. roku życia) – możliwa przyczyna inwalidztwa bądź zgonu. W zależności od wyniku badania obrazowego oraz stanu ogólnego chorego ustalane jest dalsze postępowanie terapeutyczne. Autorzy przedstawiają przypadek 71-letniego pacjenta z rozpoznanym w tomografii komputerowej kręgosłupa szyjnego złamaniem zęba obrotnika, leczonego operacyjnie w ramach Oddziału Neurochirurgii Wojewódzkiego Centrum Medycznego w Opolu. Problematyka złamania zęba obrotnika u ludzi starszych została przybliżona w obszernym omówieniu.
