The case report describes basilar invagination in a 15 years old teenager, who presents a progressive left hemiparesis, evolving since 3 years. A CT scan and an MRI of the craniovertebral junction showed the tip of the odontoid process extends 15 mm above the Chamberlin line, and causes the compression of the cervicomedullary junction. We will describe the radiological aspect of basilar invagination with a review of the literature.
