The authors present a case of a 54-year-old man with a fracture at the base of the odontoid process (dens) following a traffic accident. This paper describes the clinical-instrumental approach for research purposes, an objective diagnosis to find the presence of lesions, and the medico-legal issues caused by the difficulty in evaluating the impairment level resulting from this type of injury.
