Familial infantile scoliosis associated with bilateral paralysis of conjugate gaze.

J Med Genet. 1979 Dec;16(6):448-52

Authors: Granat M, Friedman Z, Aloni T

A family with two sibs suffering from idiopathic infantile scoliosis associated with bilateral paralysis of conjugate gaze is reported. Although the parental consanguinity and the involvement of patients of both sexes in this family are suggestive of an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance, a dominant or multifactorial pattern remains a possibility.

Lung function asymmetry in children with congenital and infantile scoliosis.

Spine J. 2008 Jul-Aug;8(4):639-44

Authors: Redding G, Song K, Inscore S, Effmann E, Campbell R

Progressive scoliosis alters lung function by reducing chest wall compliance and excursion and rotating intrathoracic contents, producing an increasingly asymmetric lung size. The effect of this distortion on regional lung perfusion and ventilation has not been described in children with congenital and infantile forms of scoliosis. The severity of scoliosis is often described by the Cobb angle of the spine, but the relationship between Cobb angle and lung function asymmetry between concave and convex lungs has not been described in this group of children.

[Prognosis of infantile scoliosis (author’s transl)].

Rev Chir Orthop Reparatrice Appar Mot. 1979 Dec;65(8):421-31

Authors: Dunoyer J, de Leobardy L, Valette C, Mechin JF

35 cases of infantile scoliosis were studied most of whom were followed for more than 10 years. In 11 instances, the scoliosis was present in the new born. The results are compared with those obtained by other authors. The authors consider that the signs found at the first examination as described by Mehta are not reliable enough and that the subsequent evolution of the curve is important. They have observed totally regressive and partially regressive cases. They are also found that right thoraco-lumbar curves in girls were common. Criteria for a more reliable prognosis are put forward.
