Traumatic C2 spondylolisthesis, fracture-luxation of C2-3 (hangman's fracture) is a severe injury with high energy, often fatal, in some cases can be almost symptomless despite of significant changes on the X--ray. The exact patho- mechanism is still debated. The case below resulted in the clinical and radilogical picture to be presented after a real hanging mechanism following a traffic injury.
