Lim, H.H.; Chong, C.S. (1999) Scoliosis in a patient with lipodystrophy--treatment difficulties and literature review. The Medical journal of Malaysia, 54 (3). pp. 368-70. ISSN 0300-5283Full text not available from this repository.
A 12 year-old Chinese schoolgirl presented with left-sided scoliosis at the age of 9 years. She has a rare defect in lipid metabolism, which is not known to be associated with spinal deformity. Her scoliotic curve deteriorated despite bracing. We report a rare occurrence of scoliosis in patient with lipodystrophy and the difficulty of using instrumented fusion in treating this condition.
