Abstract

Klippel–Feil syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by short neck, restricted neck movements and low posterior hair line. We present a case of Klippel- Feil syndrome in a 9-year-old girl, who also had left Sprengel’s deformity, bilateral overcrowding of upper ribs, and atrial septal defect. Atrial septal defect was repaired by minimally invasive technique (Right vertical infra axillary thoracotomy).

 

Keywords: Klippel – Feil syndrome; right vertical infra axillary thoracotomy; atrial septal defect
