The authors report 3 cases of rare spondylocostal dysplasia (Jarcho-Levin syndrome) associated with multiple visceral anomalies (V.A.C.TE.R.L. syndrome). The difficulty encountered in treating the disease because of the complexity and multiplicity of the visceral anomalies, and the extent and type of associated vertebral deformities is emphasized. The cases described revealed a moderate amount of progression, and were able to be treated non-surgically. It is also emphasized that even when there is moderate scoliosis associated costal deformities may cause anti-cosmetic thoracic gibbosity.

Abstract

The authors report 3 cases of rare spondylocostal dysplasia (Jarcho-Levin syndrome) associated with multiple visceral anomalies (V.A.C.TE.R.L. syndrome). The difficulty encountered in treating the disease because of the complexity and multiplicity of the visceral anomalies, and the extent and type of associated vertebral deformities is emphasized. The cases described revealed a moderate amount of progression, and were able to be treated non-surgically. It is also emphasized that even when there is moderate scoliosis associated costal deformities may cause anti-cosmetic thoracic gibbosity.
