A case of intervertebral disc calcification in a child is presented. This uncommon cause of neck pain and stiffness has a benign, self-limited course in the majority of cases. Although the presenting features are non-specific, it is important to differentiate disc calcification from disc infection. The clinical picture, radiographic signs, and differential diagnosis are discussed.
