Spinal fractures in patients with ankylosing spondylitis may be the result of minor trauma. These fractures may lead to severe neurological deficits, and they are difficult to detect using standard radiography. Often, CT-scans and MRI are required for diagnosis. Les fractures rachidiennes dans la spondylarthrite ankylosante apparaissent dans le cadre de traumatismes mineurs. Elles sont à l'origine de complications neurologiques particulièrement graves. Leur reconnaissance est souvent difficile sur les clichés standard et nécessite le recours au scanner et à l'IRM. © 2010 Elsevier Masson SAS.
