  • Basilar impression primary: A congenital bone abnormality where the skull and vertebrae meet which can compress some of the brain structures and result in neurological abnormalities. The defect is often associated with other vertebral abnormalities. In severe cases, the cerebrospinal fluid flow may be obstructed which can cause fluid to build up inside the skull (hydrocephalus).

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Basilar impression primary as a "rare disease".
