Russell-Silver syndrome is a unique disorder characterised by intrauterine growth retardation before and after birth, large-sized head, a triangular facial appearance, a protuberant forehead, asymmetry and feeding difficulties. This extensive spectrum of features varies in both occurrence and gravity from one individual to another. Congenital muscular torticollis or commonly known as wry neck is one of the common presenting complaints in the outpatient department. It is characterised by rotational deformity of the cervical spine and consequently secondary tilting of the head.
