Cervical Spine

In nearly all cases of MBI in infants and children as well as in cases of suspected physical abuse and - especially - in cases of shaken baby syndrome the removal and examination of the cervical spine including the occipito-cervical junction will be obligatory or at the very least recommended. The removal technique is described elsewhere (p. 89). The demonstration of spinal dural hemorrhages as well as of axonal injury of the spinal cord is of significant importance in providing additional evidence of a traumatic event which may be the cause of death, though there may be no other macroscopic indications.
