221 Possible Causes for Thoracic Lordosis

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Besides affecting height and limb proportions, people with Marfan syndrome may have abnormal lateral curvature of the spine (scoliosis), thoracic lordosis , abnormal indentation[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Short Rib-Polydactyly Syndrome Type Beemer-Langer

    Six familial cases of the Beemer-Langer syndrome (BLS) were analyzed to further elucidate the spectrum and frequency of anomalies observed in this disorder. Preaxial polydactyly was found in 3/6 affected sibs, and, therefore, its frequency previously may have been underestimated. Some patients, described as[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
