Abstract

Calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition (CPPD) disease, also known as pseudogout, in which crystals are deposited in the joints and/or soft tissues, leads to a variety of articular and periarticular disorders. Herein we report a 67 -year -old female patient with neck pain who was diagnosed as CPPD disease of both the atlantoaxial joint and right C4 -C5 facet joint with radiological findings. The combined use of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging can be helpful in establishing a diagnosis and providing the correct treatment.
