Click 25 year old male with cricoid fractures and dislocated left arytenoid causing ipsilateral vocal cord paralysis. Contrast-enhanced CT axial section of the neck (bone window) shows cricoid fracture involving the anterior aspect on the right side and at the junction of lamina with the arch on the left side. Fracture fragments appear displaced. The left arytenoid is dislocated and displaced superiorly. (Hitachi Eclos 8 slice CT scanner; Protocol: 250 mAs, 120kV, 2.5mm slice thickness)
