Abstract

SummarySingh index determinations in normal children, children with mild scoliosis, and Scheuermann's kyphosis indicate that the femoral trabecular index is applicable to children as well as adults and that children with mild, untreated scoliosis and untreated Scheuermann's kyphosis have relative osteoporosis when compared to normal children. The relationship of osteoporosis and acquired back deformities is discussed.
