Abstract:
Background: Spasmodic torticollis refers to involuntary dystonic movements of the head that may be associated with certain body and neck positions. The pathophysiology of dystonia is not fully known. Case Report: We report a case of torticollis that was unusual in the sense that it occurred only when the patient was lying on one side. Discussion: The cause of the cervical dystonia in this patient was unclear and the positional nature of the movements was unusual.
