Abstract:

Klippel-Feil syndrome is a complex condition caused by congenital fusion of the vertebrae due to failure in the division or normal segmentation of the cervical spine vertebrae in early fetal development. It is characterized by a triad of short neck, low hairline, and decreased neck mobility. The incidence of Klippel-Feil syndrome is approximately 1 in 40,000 to 42,000 newborns worldwide and found predominantly in females. Here a case of a 6-year-old girl child is presented having medial scapular pain with the classical triad of Klippel Feil syndrome. Physiotherapy intervention of 3weeks was given and the prognosis was established.
