Abnormal backward and lateral curvature of the spine.

A condition in which someone has both backward and lateral curvature of the spine.

A complex abnormal curvature of the spine with components of both kyphosis and scoliosis; often treated with a back brace or surgery to fuse and straighten the spine.

Abnormal curvature of the spine both forward and sideways: kyphosis combined with scoliosis. The deformity may occur during growth for no apparent reason (idiopathic kyphoscoliosis) or may result from any of several diseases involving the vertebrae and spinal muscles. Special braces can reduce the extent of the deformity; osteotomy of the backbone may be required to correct severe deformity.

A combination of scolosis and kyphosis in which the spine is abnormally curved sideways and forwards. The condition may be the result of several diseases affecting the spinal muscles and vertebrae, or it may occur during development for no obvious reason. Although braces can reduce the deformity, an operation may be necessary to correct it.

Lateral curvature of the spine accompanying an anteroposterior hump.

Scoliosis refers to an abnormal curvature of the spine in both the frontal and lateral planes.

A blend of the two spinal curvatures: kyphosis and scoliosis.

A curvature of the spine in both posterior and lateral directions.
