We present a case of cervical spinal cord injury by C6 and C7 vertebral fractures which was thought as Brown-Séquard syndrome accompanied with cervical roots injury. The temporal course of motor recovery was observed retrospectively and the mechanisms of recovery as well as possible sites of injury were also reviewed.
