Idiopathic scoliosis occurs in 3% of individuals and has an unknown etiology. The objective of this study was to identify rare variants that contribute to the etiology of idiopathic scoliosis by using exome sequencing in a multigenerational family with idiopathic scoliosis. Exome sequencing was completed for three members of this multigenerational family(More)
STUDY DESIGN A hypothesis-driven study was conducted in a familial cohort to determine the potential association between variants within the TBX6 gene and Familial Idiopathic Scoliosis (FIS). OBJECTIVE To determine if variants within exons of the TBX6 gene segregate with the FIS phenotype within a sample of families with FIS. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA(More)
