Abstract
A case of SprengeFs deformity in a 5 year-old male orphan is presented. He was admitted to Pusan Children’s Charity Hospital in July, 1967, because of moderately limitted elevation and abduction of his left arm and abnormally elevated his left scapula. On physical examination, he was normally developed and moderately nourished, but asymmertrically his lift scapula was 2 cm higher than that of the right. The jabduction of his left arm was limited at 100-110 degree. The left side of his neck was a little shortened and also mildly limited in rotation, The x-ray picture revealed the highly elevated left scapular shadow above the thorax and suggestive omovertebral bone connecting left scapula to 6th and 7th cervical vertebrae was seen. He was operated by Woodward’s method with good reiult. The operation was resulted in good cosmetic repair and slight improvement in functional correction. A brief review of the literatures was made.
