Abstract

A patient with Klippel-Feil syndrome reported with a pneurnatocyst of the proximal epiphysis of a right cervical rib. There was no. additional skeletal abnormality except for fusion of the C3 and C4 vertebral bodies. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported instance of this particular association.
