The Teaching Point

The complex anatomical abnormalities in Klippel-Feil Syndrome and Sprengel Deformity are easily demonstrated with multidetector CT with 3D reconstructions which could help in making the diagnosis, as well as in planning surgical treatment. Imaging reveals in most cases in details the typical abnormalities as atlantoocipital fusion, fusion of the cervical spine, together with malposition, rotation and morphology of the undescended scapula and the vertical omovertebral bone.

Abstract
Coexistence of Klippel-Feil syndrome with Sprengel deformity and omovertebral bone is a rare complex bone abnormality with unknown incidence and etiology. Herein, we report a case of a 6-year-old girl with coexistence of these congenital abnormalities evaluated by three-dimensional computed tomography. We also make a brief review and discuss in details the role of this imaging modality in the evaluation of such complex cases.
