Abstract : In recent years, interest in diseases of the nervous system resulting from cervical osteochondrosis has increased markedly. The wide range of cerebral disorders (headaches, visual, auditory and vestibular disorders, etc.) frequently encountered in the practice of doctors in various specialties frequently simulate severe disorders of the nervous system. These cerebral disorders have come to be called cervical migraine. (Bartschi-Rochaix). They arise as a result of the pressure of osteophytes of the cervical vertebrae on the vertebral artery and the vertebral nerve which is entwined with it in the canalis trasversarium. Careful X-ray examination of the cervical segment of the spine is very important in the establishment of a final diagnosis. This examination is designed to reveal indications of osteochondrosis, particularly deformation of the so called unco-vertebral joint. (Author)
