  • 6 week old newborn who had a difficult delivery via forceps who now has his head rotated to the left with contralateral chin deviation with a nontender mass in the right side of the neck, most consistent with torticollis
  • Torticollis: Neck mass + ipsilateral head tilt + contralateral chin deviation

If the chin is deviated to the right, then wouldn't the "mass" (which I assume is the tight SCM muscle) be on the LEFT side of the neck??
