Obstructive hydrocephalus occurs as a result of anatomic or functional obstruction to the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow due to various pathologies including intracranial infection, tumors, and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Recently, obstructive hydrocephalus has been described as a rare complication following foramen magnum decompression (FMD) for Chiari malformation; however, there are few reports of obstructive hydrocephalus after spinal surgery for other pathologies of the craniovertebral junction (CVJ). We herein report the case of a 52-year-old female who developed acute obstructive hydrocephalus after undergoing resection of the C1 posterior arch and part of the occipital bone.
