Neurologists have to manage patients with cervical spondylosis, a common neurological disease in individuals over the age of 50 years. The diagnosis of cervical spondylosis requires a detailed neurological examination that takes into account cervical levels. To prevent misdiagnosis, it is important to integrate the levels of the lesions revealed by imaging with the clinical findings. Differential diagnoses for cervical spondylosis include a member of neurological diseases, including but not limited to cerebrovascular disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, peripheral nerve disease, and spinal cord sarcoidosis. Though the course of the disease and the ultimate prognosis for patients with cervical spondylosis are highly variable, many patients experience a relatively benign form of the disease.
