Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Presumed monozygotic triplets presented with discordant, "mirrow-image," hemivertebral congenital scoliosis in 2 infants and an idiopathic (infantile) scoliosis, without recognized developmental abnormalities, in the third. The findings suggest extragenetic causality in all 3--problems of cleavage/somite formation in the 2 with hemivertebrae, and intrauterine positioning in the third.
