Studies have shown that 34% to 74% of Klippel-Feil Syndrome patients present with such findings. Seventy-five human C2 specimens of both sexes were examined for Klippel-Feil Syndrome. During the osteologic examination for Klippel-Feil Syndrome, we noticed two adult specimens with congenital fusion of C2 and C3 vertebrae.
