Abstract

The acute calcific tendinitis of the longus colli muscle is a rare inflammatory process of the prevertebral muscles. The clinical picture includes acute neck pain, limited range of motion of the cervical spine with stiffness and odynophagia. The laboratory findings demonstrate inflammatory signs. The incidence of the disease peaks between the third and sixth decade. The knowledge of the characteristic radiologic findings and the self-limiting course prevents the patient from needless medical and surgical interventions.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
