42 Possible Causes for Rudimentary Ribs

  • Cerebro-Costo-Mandibular Syndrome

    * Rudimentary ribs * Rib abnormalities * Pterygium colli * Abnormal tracheal cartilaginous rings * Vertebral anomalies * Elbow hypoplasia * Hearing loss * Renal cyst * Renal[checkorphan.org] The costal abnormalities may consistof agenetic ribs, rudimentary ribs limited to theirdorsal segment (as we noticed in our case) or gapdefects between dorsal ossified and[docslide.com.br] Rib involvement is usually bilateral but not necessarily symmetrical Rudimentary or absent ribs have been described.[fetalultrasound.com]

  • Congenital Anomaly of the Pelvis

    If fusion does not occur, the cartilaginous center may develop independently, forming a rudimentary rib.[academic.oup.com]

  • Congenital Malformation of the Ribs

    We are reporting a case of VATER associated with rib anomalies in various forms like bifid rib, ribbon rib and rudimentary rib.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] incidence was 0.6%, fusion type rib abnormality was 0.3%, cervical rib was 0.2%, hypoplastic and rudimentary rib was 0.2%, and pseudoarthrosis of the 1st rib was 0.1% .[jpma.org.pk] Wakeley. (1931-32) Cervical ribs and rudimentary first thoracic ribs considered from clinical and etiological standpoints. J. Anat. 66:334-370.[anatomyatlases.org]

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

    Cervical radiographs showed long transverse process of C7 on the right side and a small rudimentary rib articulating with C7 on the left side.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This rudimentary rib causes fibrous changes around the brachial plexus nerves, inducing compression and causing the symptoms and signs of TOS.[en.wikipedia.org] Cervical ribs and rudimentary first ribs occur in less than 0.5% of the population.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Defects of the Axial Skeleton

    Rudimentary cervical ribs were present in almost half of all cases and were not specifically associated with extraskeletal abnormalities.[discovery.ucl.ac.uk] Variations in vertebral morphology ( whether changes in overall numbers or homeotic transformations from one morphological type to another) and of number of well-formed ribs[discovery.ucl.ac.uk]

  • Thoracic Duct Obstruction

    Cervical ribs and rudimentary first ribs occur in less than 0.5% of the population.[emedicine.medscape.com] Rudimentary ribs usually arise higher in the neck than normal first ribs and typically articulate with the second rib rather than with the sternum.[emedicine.medscape.com] A search for cervical, rudimentary, or broad first ribs should be done. These structures should be resected during surgical therapy.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System

    Most frequent between T & L spines. 1st lumbar may have rudimentary ribs. C-7 may have cervical rib Incomplete fusion of the laminae.[quizlet.com]

  • Payr's Syndrome

    This rudimentary rib causes fibrous changes around the brachial plexus nerves, inducing compression and causing the symptoms and signs of TOS.[en.wikipedia.org] This allows increased blood flow and the reduction of nerve compression. [18] In some cases there may be a rudimentary rib or a cervical rib that can be causing the compression[en.wikipedia.org] Some people are born with an extra incomplete and very small rib above their first rib, which protrudes out into the superior thoracic outlet space.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cervical Rib Syndrome
