PMID:  8172524     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A few cases of congenital scoliosis due to segmentation failure have so far reported and the antenatal detection of pure congenital kyphosis without scoliosis due to segmentation failure has not been reported. We report the first prenatal identification using ultrasound of a fetus affected with pure congenital kyphosis due to anterior segmentation failure of the vertebral body between the second and third lumbar spine which was associated with ventriculomegaly, cleft palate, and hydramnios.
