Abstract

In this study, we describe a 4-year-old boy with a head, cervical, and left shoulder injury following the reception of a heavy metallic door on his left side that resulted in SCIWORA.


SCWORA is defined as spinal cord injury without x rays or CT scans lesions but can be detectable on RMI scans. SCIWORA follows trauma, sometimes trivial. The management consists of immobilization and nursing. The clinician should be aware of this entity. We are reporting the management of a four years old boy.
