Although advances in neuroimaging have result in great improvement in the diagnosis of cervical spine and cord disorders, it is still more difficult to localize symptoms in the cervical spine and cord than in the brain. Here, I discuss the following relatively new aspects in cervical spine and cord symptomatology: Ⅰ. Headache and facial pain; Ⅱ. Vertigo and dizziness; Ⅲ. Peculiar hand symptoms due to high cervical spine and cord disorders; Ⅳ. Symptoms in the C3-C4 level; Ⅴ. Postoperative C5 palsy; Ⅵ. Peculiar weakness due to lower cervical spine diseases; Ⅶ. False localizing sensory signs; Ⅷ. Autonomic symptoms; and IX. Transient neurological deficits.
