Abstract

Calcification of cervical intervertebral disks in childhood is a well-known entity, although the etiology remains unknown. Rarely, disk herniation also may be present and produce symptoms of cord compression. The disk herniation and calcification usually resolve with conservative therapy over a period of a few weeks to several months. We present an interesting case in which the diagnosis was established by MR; CT provided complementary information.
