10 Possible Causes for Abnormal Spine X-Ray, Leg Length Inequality, Midline Defects

  • Spina Bifida Occulta

    Abstract Spina bifida, a congenital deformity of the posterior wall of vertebrae of the spine, is a midline defect of skin, vertebral arches and neural tube, usually in the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Crysta Serne 1 Comment Categories: Chiropractic Tags: Chiropractor , Leg Length Inequality , Low Back Pain , Spina Bifida Occulta[vitalityclinic.ca] Spina bifida occulta may be present from birth, but a mild abnormality may remain undetected unless the spine is subjected to an X-ray or an MRI.[laserspineinstitute.com]

  • Scoliosis

    Abstract Cantrell's pentalogy (CP) is a rare syndrome characterized by defects in the lower sternum with ectopia cordis, anterior diaphragm defects, midline supraumbilical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] length inequality as cause of scoliosis other important findings on physical exam leg length inequality midline skin defects (hairy patches, dimples, nevi) signs of spinal[orthobullets.com] Scoliosis means abnormal curvature of the spine greater than 10 degrees, as measured on an X-ray.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org]

  • Imperforate Anus

    References Opitz G/BBB syndrome, a defect of midline development, is due to mutations in a new RING finger gene on Xp22.[wikigenes.org] However, leg length inequality and recurrence of the deformities are not uncommon, necessitating further surgical interventions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tests used may include: X-rays of the spine to detect bone abnormalities spinal ultrasound looking for abnormalities in the vertebral body, or bones of the spine echocardiogram[healthline.com]

  • Callus Formation of the Clavicle

    Sometimes fusion fails, resulting in a defect that separates the outer third and the inner two thirds.[oganatomy.org] For example, limited pronation-supination after forearm fractures or the development of pelvic obliquity, scoliosis, and back pain secondary to leg-length inequality.[boneandspine.com] Bones visible on a chest X-ray include the ribs, clavicles, scapulae, humeri, and the spine.[radiologymasterclass.co.uk]

  • Postural Defect

    Lumbar vertebrae L3-L5 : The plumb line falls through the midline of the vertebrae. It helps analysis if you locate the rear of the vertebrae manually.[drmichaelcolgan.com] They can also act as vehicles for heel lifts to correct leg length inequalities.[advancechiro.on.ca] X-rays can show if there are any abnormalities to the bones of the spine and can also measure how much curve is present.[webmd.com]

  • Familial Congenital Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction

    Surgical treatment consists of complete removal of the mass--both intracranial and intranasal--with closure of the resulting defect.[myslide.es] Dermatoses Leg Injuries Leg Length Inequality Leg Ulcer Legg-Perthes Disease Legionellosis Legionnaires' Disease Leigh Disease Leiomyoma Leiomyoma, Epithelioid Leiomyomatosis[medgene.med.harvard.edu] If signs or symptoms emerge, evaluation should proceed with c-spine x-rays (neutral position followed by flexion/extension only if no abnormality is seen), neuroimaging, and[medicalhomeportal.org]
