The slaughtered animals were hung to remove the skin, head (at the occipitoatlantal

With disease progression, the occipitoatlantal
complex involvement becomes significant and cranial settling develops.

We found no screws penetrating the occipitoatlantal

joint (8 degree decrease of clivus-axis angle), increased basilar impression, and cerebellar ptosis with downward displacement of cerebellar tonsils to C-1 (white arrow).
