Rights and Permissions

In newborns and infants with congenital space-occupying cervical lesions, sternocleidomastoid tumors represent a relatively uncommon differential diagnosis. With an early and prolonged manual stretching exercise, it does generally go away. Some may need to have the muscle surgically released to avoid plagiocephaly, facial asymmetry, and scoliosis. We report a case of a 6-year-old child with significant torticollis who required surgery for a favorable cosmetic and functional outcome.
