The occipital condyle fracture is a rare injury of the craniocervical junction. Meningeal spinal cysts are rare tumors of the spinal cord. Depending on location, these lesions may be classified as extradural and subdural, but extradural spinal cysts are more common. This article presents the case of a 15-year-old girl who suffered from avulsion occipital condyle fracture treated with the use of “halo-vest” system. Control MRI evaluation was performed 12 months after removal of “halo-vest” traction, and clinically silent extradural meningeal spinal cysts were detected at the ventral side of the spinal cord in the cervical segment of the spine. Due to the clinically silent course of the disease, it was decided to use the conservative treatment.
