Could it be Klippel-feil syndrome? At 12yrs old, learned I have congenital (45degree) cervicothoracic scoliosis w/congenital cervical fusion.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: YES

The fusion of any two cervical verterbrae can be an expression of Klippel-Feil Syndrome and the scoliosis can be due to the effects of the fusion on the normal S shaped curving of the spine.
