Abstract

Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament is a potentially curable cause of thoracic myelopathy. As this case illustrates, MRI can confirm the diagnosis, demonstrate other concomitant pathology such as disc herniation, and help assess the clinical significance of OPLL by showing spinal word compression.
