The following report is a case of central cord syndrome in a seven-year-old girl. There was no history of major trauma except instances of standing on her head. Plain x-rays and CT myelography of the cervical spine revealed no abnormalities. Although she was apneic for 12 days and quadriparetic, the patient recovered and was able to walk on the 24th hospital day. Since central cord syndrome as a result of standing on head is unusual in children with a normal cervical spine, the arthors decided to report the above described case for medical interest.
Key Words: Central cord syndrome; Children; Standing on head; Spinal injury
