Abstract

A retrospective review of the radiographs of 1215 patients with congenital scoliosis and kyphosis disclosed 298 (25%) to have segmentation defects in the cervical spine. A single level defect was seen in 82 patients, 52 of which were at C2-C3. Of the 298 patients, 235 had scoliosis, (6 cervical, 42 cervicothoracic, 75 thoracic, 4 thoracolumbar, and 1 lumbar), 36 had kyphoscoliosis, 10 lordoscoliosls, and 17 pure kyphosis.
