Purpose of review Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is the most common spinal deformity affecting 2% of the population. Initial diagnosis is straightforward. Determining which curves will progress and warrant intervention is still problematic. Recent genetics research has discovered markers that are associated with progression to a severe curve, providing new information that can lead to more effective care with lower cost and fewer unnecessary radiographs and brace applications.

This seminal article shows that idiopathic scoliosis is a familial condition and demonstrates that it is expressed through either dominant or multiple gene inheritance
    This study provides the information necessary to investigate the major genes involved in the development of AIS
