Muscular torticollis results from shortening or excessive contraction of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. The reported incidence varies between 0.4% and 1.9%, and it is the third most common musculoskeletal anomaly that affects children (after hip dislocation and club foot). A 23-year-old female patient suffering from congenital muscular torticollis reported to the Department of Prosthodontics, A.B. Shetty Memorial Institute of Dental Sciences, Deralakatte, Mangalore. Applying an interdisciplinary approach involving a team comprising an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, a prosthodontist and a physiotherapist, we functionally and esthetically rehabilitated the patient.
