Torticollis acquired in late infancy due to a cerebellar gangliocytoma.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Torticollis in infancy is a common disorder and is typically benign and self-limiting. However, in some instances it is the presentation of serious disease. A critical distinction is whether the condition is congenital or acquired. We present a case of acquired late infantile torticollis caused by a cerebellar gangliocytoma that underscores the importance of making this determination prior to initiating a treatment plan. A gangliocytoma presenting with torticollis has not been previously described.
