[Klippel-Feil syndrome. Three-dimensional tomographic images].


Klippel-Feil syndrome (KPS) is characterized by congenital vertebral fusion believed to result from faulty segmentation along the embryo's developing axis. The hallmark phenotypic findings of low hairline, short neck, and limited range of motion of the neck are found as al triad in < 50% of patients. Congenital musculoskeletal and systemic anomalies are commonly found. These include, but are not limited to elevation of the scapula, scoliosis and renal and cardiac abnormalities. Here, we present the three-dimensional images by computed tomography of a 9-year-old boy with multiple fusion of the cervical vertebraes.
