STRUCTURED ABSTRACT:: Study Design. Case report.Objective. To demonstrate a 36-year follow-up of a rare operation.Summary of Background Data. There have been no reports of follow-up of pediatric hemivertebra excision and fusion into mid-adult life.Methods. A chart and radiological review at 36 years following surgery.Results. The patient is alive and well and leading a normal life. Her ODI (Oswestry Disability Index) is zero. Mild degenerative radiological signs are evident at the adjacent level above (T10-T12) and below (sacroiliac joints).Conclusion. Earlier excision of the L5 hemivertebra would have been preferable, but the long term results are good.
