In brief: Congenital torticoll
Many articles on congenital muscular torticollis have been published in the surgical literature.
Most have been devoted to the histology of this disorder and the various theories of its etiologyrelatively little has been written about the long-term results of treatment. From the literature, it is clear that: the pathogenesis and etiology of congenital muscular torticollis are unknown.
