Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN) is a systemic disease characterized by progressive bone loss and destruction, which is usually closely related to diabetes, HIV, However, CN caused by syringomyelia accounts for only 5% of CN cases; the shoulder and elbow are most often involved, and the hip joint is rarely affected. As a rare factor, cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) can be associated with syringomyelia, which is scarcely reported in the literature. Here, we present the first case report to date of CN of the hip caused by syringomyelia secondary to CSM.
