Cat scratch disease can have varied presentations in children ranging from lymphadenopathy with systemic symptoms of fever, sore throat and headache to atypical manifestations like oculo-glandular syndrome, meningo-encephalitis, osteolytic lesions, and retinitis. We report the case of a child presenting with isolated torticollis, in whom cat scratch disease was the final diagnosis and review of literature on the varied presentations of this disease. A thorough history and physical examination were vital in the diagnosis and management of this patient.
