Severe rotoscoliosis with gibbus deformity

Case contributed by Dr Mohammad Taghi Niknejad

Presentation

35 Y/O male with congenital spinal anatomical abnormalities ( kyphosis and scoliosis due to formation and segmentation failure ) . This deformity exaggerated with trauma at childhood.

Patient Data

Age: 35
Gender: Male

The left scoliotic curve is angular and the kyphosis is extreme ( Gibbus deformity ). Bone detail is characteristically confused at the deformity. Multiple formation and segmentation failures with old collapse and compression fractures are noted at T11-L1 levels. Severe rotational deformity also is seen. Spinal canal is narrowed at the angle of the deformity.
