The new millennium has witnessed a sea change in diagnostic imaging sciences and the unfortunate 'tilt' toward 'over imaging' and 'over relying' on modern imaging needs to be relooked. This case report emphasizes the need to strengthen conventional diagnostic skills/acumen and the importance of case history taking in all its grandeur as a part of comprehensive patient work up. In this case report of a 7-year-old child, the entire prognosis and treatment outcome was fortuitous since the imaging findings and suspected diagnosis on magnetic resonance imaging were relegated to the findings of history and clinical examination.
