Rotoscoliosis

35 Y/O male with congenital spinal anatomical abnormalities ( kyphosis and scoliosis due to formation and segmentation failure ) . This deformity exaggerated with trauma at childhood. (case reblogged from Radiopedia.org)

Case discussion: The left scoliotic curve is angular and the kyphosis is extreme ( Gibbus deformity ). Bone detail is characteristically confused at the deformity. Multiple formation and segmentation failures with old collapse and compression fractures are noted at T11-L1 levels. Severe rotational deformity also is seen. Spinal canal is narrowed at the angle of the deformity.
