17 Possible Causes for Severe Progressive Thoracolumbar Scoliosis

  • Horizontal Gaze Palsy with Progressive Scoliosis

    Further observation showed dorsal thoracolumbar scoliosis with torticollis over the left shoulder.[healio.com] Fernando da Fonseca due to progressive visual acuity impairment, with severe deterioration during the previous year.[healio.com]

  • Scoliosis

    CEREBRAL PALSY SCOLIOSIS • Most often thoracolumbar curve • Pelvic obliquity & hip contracture present INDICATIONS • Progressive curve of any degree • Normal mortality 92.[slideshare.net] TREATMENT • For severe lumbar & thoracolumbar curves anterior fusion with dwyer instrumentation then after 2 weeks posterior fusion with harrington rods. 93.[slideshare.net] NEUROFIBROMATOSIS SCOLIOSIS • Constitutes about 1% • Associated with skin lesions , multiple neurofibroma & bony dystrophy affecting vertebra & ribs • Curve is short & sharp[slideshare.net]

  • Spondylolisthesis

    A 12-year-old boy with Hunter syndrome presented with severe thoracolumbar kyphoscoliosis and no associated symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The deformity progressed to kyphosis of 60 and scoliosis of 42 prior to surgical intervention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spinal radiographs demonstrated kyphosis of 48 (T11-L3) and scoliosis of 22 (T11-L3) with an anteriorly hypoplastic L-1 vertebra.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    A 12-year-old boy with Hunter syndrome presented with severe thoracolumbar kyphoscoliosis and no associated symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The deformity progressed to kyphosis of 60 and scoliosis of 42 prior to surgical intervention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spinal radiographs demonstrated kyphosis of 48 (T11-L3) and scoliosis of 22 (T11-L3) with an anteriorly hypoplastic L-1 vertebra.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rett Syndrome

    In this study, the authors report the results of a 4-year follow-up of a 10-year-old Rett syndrome female patient with early onset and severe rapid progressive thoracolumbar[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The curve in Rett syndrome is of a neurologic type, has its highest incidence during early childhood, and shows rapid progression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome

    […] with instrumentation and developed SMA syndrome due to progressive weight loss several weeks postoperatively.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] Case presentation We present the atypical case of a patient with normal body habitus and a 50 adolescent idiopathic thoracolumbar scoliosis who underwent anterior spinal arthrodesis[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]

  • Alexander Disease

    From the age of 10, thoracolumbar scoliosis had gradually become severe.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When he was 7 years old, a pediatrician had diagnosed Alexander disease (hypotonia, macrocephaly, and progressive low-density white matter predominantly in the frontal region[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neurofibromatosis Type 1

    For severe and progressive kyphotic deformities, most authors recommend a period of traction followed by a combined anterior-posterior fusion that is instrumented from parallel[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cervical lesions are frequently asymptomatic, but patients with thoracolumbar scoliosis, dystrophic features, or a history of laminectomy should have the cervical spine carefully[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Familial Congenital Palsy of Trochlear Nerve

    One of the families was of Saudi origin; the patient was a 13 year old boy who presented with a progressive right-curved thoracolumbar scoliosis.[cags.org.ae] His horizontal eye movements were severely disturbed. He had left microhypertropia with fusion and motor developmental delay.[cags.org.ae]

  • Congenital Malformation of the Spine

    Unsegmented hemivertebra Little progression As regards the site of the anomaly, the rate of deterioration of the resulting scoliosis is most severe in the thoracic and thoracolumbar[emedicine.medscape.com] Rapid and relentless Unilateral unsegmented bar Rapid Fully segmented hemivertebra Steady Partially segmented hemivertebra Less rapid Incarcerated hemivertebra May slowly progress[emedicine.medscape.com]
