Fracture of the occipital condyle is a rare injury. We report three patients with occipital condyle fracture who presented with neck pain, restricted neck movements; no neurological deficit and unremarkable plain radiographs following fall. Diagnosis was established with high-resolution computed tomography. Hence we recommend high resolution computed tomography evaluation of base of skull in patients of cervical trauma with painful restricted neck movements for detection of subtle base of skull fracture which are not detected by plain radiography.
