Abstract

Symptomatic cervical intervertebral disc calcification in children presents with characteristic signs and symptoms, and usually has a benign, self-limiting and predictable course. The radiological images of the spine likewise have typical appearances, with a recognisable pattern and following a predetermined course. A case report of this uncommon condition in an 8-year-old boy illustrates most of the clinical and radiological findings in this entity.
