Description: Atlanta Case 17. The image is of an infant with torticollis. This is a clinical sign and not a diagnosis. The attitude of the head and neck results from a combination of head tilt and rotation. A tight sternomastoid muscle causes head tilt towards the tight side with rotation of the chin to the opposite side.
The differential diagnosis is extensive and important.
