In spastic cerebral palsy cervical dystonia with congenital AAD is a rare association. The combination of these and regression of milestones produces clinical dilemma. We present a case of generalized spastic dystonic cerebral palsy with AAD. The child had regression of the milestones following a trivial fall due to compression at the cervicomedullary junction. One has to differentiate the regression of milestones caused by untreatable herditary or treatable mechanical etiologies. This might make significant difference in management, prognosis and may have financial implications.
