Benign paroxysmal torticollis in infancy is characterized by periods of torticollic posturing of the head. The onset of the episodes usually occurs during the first month of life and may recur at varying intervals until the age of 1-5 years. This appears to be a self-limited disorder. The follow-up of 7 patients with benign paroxysmal torticollis is presented.
