Infantile Scoliosis


Updated August 10, 2003

Definition: Infantile scoliosis is found in children age 2 months to 3 years. Most cases of infantile scoliosis are relatively minor and tend to resolve spontaneously. Because of this, observation is usually appropriate treatment. In severe cases, or if there is continued progression of the deformity, then surgical treatment may be necessary.
