Calcified cervical intervertebral discs in children. Report of three cases.


:Calcified cervical intervertebral discs in children are manifestations of an uncommon, distinct disease of unknown cause. Acute symptoms are usually followed by a benign course of spontaneous recovery, frequently culminating in resorption of the calcium. Rarely herniation of the disc may cause neurological complications. Two cases are presented as examples of the typical syndrome. A third case was operated on because of herniation with radiculopathy; the clinical, radiographic, and pathological findings are reported in detail.
