The authors report a rare case of rotational dislocation of the thoracolumbar spine in a 12-year-old girl with neurofibromatosis Type 1. The patient had progressive spinal kyphoscoliosis with acute-onset paraplegia. She was treated with corrective traction preoperatively, followed by spinal decompression and circumferential spinal fusion without instrumentation. She had complete neurological recovery after a solid fusion of her spine.
