Hello and thanks for posting your query on HCM
Your MRI report suggests that there is fracture of vertebra C6. Due to this fracture there is dislocation of vertebra C5 and C6.
The spinal cord opposite this level is damaged.
This fracture and damage to cord at this level ahas caused collection (?could be blood) in the epidural space (space lying above the coverings of brain)

Thanks and take care
