Lopez-Vicchi, Martin; Da Prat, Gustavo; Gatto, Emilia Mabel

Background: Dystonic postures possess a great number of differential diagnoses.
Phenomenology Shown: We describe a pseudodystonic posture in a 61‐year‐old woman with skeletal and extra‐skeletal abnormalities.
Educational Value: Klippel–Feil syndrome represents an unusual cause of pseudodystonic posture to be considered in the differential diagnosis of dystonia.
