Specializes in Pediatrics

Klippel Feil: syndrome, which is a fusion of any 2 of the cervical vertebrae, often associated with other features, has different inheritance depending on which vertebrae are fused. There also are spontaneous mutations of the gene, which would mean that a person may not have a family history. I would recommend discussing this with your doctor or a genetic specialist.
