Atlantoaxial rotatory fixation (AARF) can be caused by infection, rheumatoid arthritis, surgery of head and neck, and congenital diseases. Type 1 neurofibromatosis (NF-1) is often associated with various musculoskeletal diseases, but few reports have described AARF with NF-1. Here, we report the success of a closed reduction and halo fixation utilized to treat chronic AARF with NF-1 in a 7-year-old female.
