Intervertebral disc herniation is rare in children and is reportedly related with disc calcification and traumatic injury. We report an 8 years old girl, who complained of tingling sensation in both arms and intentional tic like neck stretching for about 1 month. She had got unnoticed whiplash Injury 2 weeks before symptoms. She also had been taking lessons for taekwondo for one and half year. Physical examination was unremarkable. Her symptoms got aggravated over the next 4 weeks. Plain vertebral x-ray showed no abnormalities, but cervical spinal MRI revealed disc central herniations at C 5-6 and C 6-7 levels. We concluded that her paresthesia and tic like motion were related with cervical disc herniation from hyperflexion neck injury.
Key Words: Cervical disc herniation, Tic disorder, Paresthesia
