61 Possible Causes for Lordosis in USA

  • Spondylo-Ocular Syndrome

    other areas: Eyes amblyopia cataracts nystagmus retinal detachment Spine normal height with disproportionate short trunk immobile spine thoracic kyphosis reduced lumbar lordosis[1]

  • Smith-Magenis Syndrome

    Skeletal malformations often involve the spine, especially lordosis (front-to-back spine curvature) and scoliosis (sideway spine curvature). … Other signs may be: Abnormal spine curvature (scoliosis and lordosis) Short stature Raucous voice Considerable reduction of pain and temperature sensitivity Vision problems … Key features can involve other body parts, like spine (scoliosis and lordosis), kidney, the immune system, and frequent episodes of peripheral neuropathy like decreased sensitivity[2]

  • Hypochondroplasia

    Numerous features can accompany short stature - macrocephaly, a prominent forehead, brachydactyly involving both the hands and the feet, lumbar lordosis, and a limited range[3]

  • Iniencephaly

    The spine is severely distorted as well along with significant shortening due to marked lordosis. … nervous system (CNS) and anatomic structures of the fetus can be clearly visualized and the characteristic malformations of iniencephaly, such as a shortened trunk, marked lordosis[4]

  • Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Congenita

    Curvature of the spine (kyphoscoliosis and lordosis) progresses during childhood and can cause problems with breathing.[5]

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    Brachydactyly, a knock knee, lumbar lordosis, scoliosis, ulnar deviation of the hands are other notable signs of this genetic disease.[6]

  • Coxa Vara

    If there is a bilateral involvement the child might have a waddling gait or trendelenburg gait with an increased lumbar lordosis.[7]

  • Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome

    All other etiological factors such as spinal lordosis and body casts also cause the characteristic anatomic defect of SMA. … SMA syndrome can be prevented by avoiding body casts which aggravate lumbar lordosis or distort the abdominal shape and structure. … Other risk factors of SMA syndrome include laxity of the abdominal wall, lordosis, and use of body casts, hence SMA syndrome is also called cast syndrome.[8]

  • Lumbar Compression Fracture

    In the elderly, multiple fractures over a period of time lead to decrease in height and stature with subsequent paraspinal muscle shortening, lumbar lordosis, and thoracic[9]

  • Aspartylglucosaminuria

    Additional musculoskeletal (thickening of the ribs and skull, lordosis, vertebral dysplasia, contractures in fingers and elbows, a knock knee, muscle atrophy and hypotonia[10]
