What is congenital cervical fusion?

Congenital cervical fusion is a type of deformity or anomaly of the spine that is present at birth (congenital). Such anomalies of the spine can range in severity and complexity: they may be simple and cause no deformity or they may result in significant structural or functional impairment.
