Abstract
We report a case of 6-year-old boy who presented with a 1-month history of neck
pain, right-sided torticollis, with no neurological deficit on physical examination.
Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain and
spine revealed an expansive intramedullary tumor in the cervical spine. Histopathologic
examination of the biopsy specimen revealed primary low-grade glioma. This
highlights the importance of physician’s vigilance when diagnosing patients with
common chief complaints such as torticollis and neck pain in order to avoid missing
possible severe causes and to ensure patient management and prognosis.
