Abstract

Kyphoscoliosis is a complication of some bone dysplasias, including Cleido-cranial dysplasia (CCD). We report on massive spinal dysplasia secondary to severe spinal dyssygmentation associated with marked defective ossification of the ischium, detected in a Tunisian female child with a severe form of Cleido-cranial dysplasia. Literature review on Cleido cranial dysplasia and associated spinal abnormalities showed no previous similar reports as encountered in our patient.

Keywords
Cleido cranial, dysplasia, spinal dyssygmentation, defective ossification of the ischium, kyphoscoliosis.
