Two cases of ocular torticollis were reported. One case was a 3-year-old female, and another case was an 8-year-old male. These cases had been diagnosed by orthopedic surgeons as a habitual torticollis. They were introduced to our university hospital because their torticollis position had not been improved after three years old.It was revealed by examination that sterno-cleido-mastoid muscle and range of motion was normal. Their torticollis position was improved by Patch test on one eye and Bielshowsky head tilt test was positive. These findings suggested that it was due to ocular torticollis. They were treated by an ophthalmologist and improved.
