Congenital Osseous Torticollis that Mimics Congenital Muscular Torticollis: A Retrospective Observational Study

Torticollis in children with enlarged vestibular aqueducts.
TLDR
Tricollis in infants may be a marker of EVA and infants with torticollis should be monitored closely for hearing loss and motor delay, especially when the tortiollis is paroxysmal. Expand
