Klippel-Feil syndrome with situs inversus--a rare association



Klippel-Feil syndrome with situs inversus--a rare association



Journal of the College of Physicians and Surgeons--Pakistan 18(4): 248-249



Klippel-Feil Syndrome (KFS) is a congenital anomaly characterized by a defect in the formation or segmentation of the cervical vertebrae. The clinical triad consists of short neck, low posterior hairline and limited neck movement. Multiple congenital anomalies have been associated with this disease. This is a case of KFS in a young girl along with situs inversus, which is an extremely rare association. Various systemic associations occurring in this multi-system disorder are also discussed.
