Degenerative spondylolisthesis of the cervical spine is relative rare. We present a relative rare case of severe degenerative cervical spondylolisthesis with posterior corrective fusion. A 70-year-old female complained of neck pain and gait disturbance with cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Plain radiographs showed 8.3 mm anterolisthesis of C3/ C4, which gradually progressed during four years. The slip was not reduced by flexion and extension position. After releasing C3/C4 facet joint and yellow ligament, posterior reduction with instrumentation were performed and resulted in successful cervical correction and fusion.
