Structural lesions of
CNS, reported to be associated with torticollis, are mostly restricted to
cerebellum, brain stem and basal ganglia. In fact, we
know only about two documented frontal lobe mass lesions—meningiomas,
associated with torticollis. Our
observation of frontal lobe cavernous angioma associated with clinical
picture of torticollis confirms the role this area could play in
the pathophysiology of involuntary movements.
We report a case of patient with torticollis associated with cavernous angioma
of the right frontal lobe and presuppose causative role of angioma in the development
of our patient’s torticollis.
