abstract

  • © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2017.A 10-year-old girl, an excellent athlete without any past medical history, comes to your office after a teammate on her soccer team noticed one of her shoulder blades was more prominent than the other. Her father noticed the whole spine was rotated and had a significant curve. On your examination she had no neurologic symptoms except a mild degree of hyperreflexia. You obtained scoliosis films which indicated a levoscoliotic curve with a Cobb angle of 38°.
