Aarskog-Scott syndrome: An unusual cause of scoliosis

A 16-year-old boy who had been diagnosed as Aarskog-Scott syndrome before being admitted to our clinic with shoulder asymmetry for a year was referred to our clinic with shoulder asymmetry for 1 year by a teen. The results of spine examination revealed a 52° right thoracic curve at T3-T11. Spine deformities can arise as a result of mutations that affect the growing skeleton tissue. Although we don't have a specific pattern of this syndrome's scoliotic deformity of this syndrome, surgical correction of the deformity can be difficult, given the early fusion at these rates.

Radiation Necrosis with Proton Therapy in a Patient with Aarskog-Scott Syndrome and Medulloblastoma

Case Report: A 5-year-old male with Aarskog-Scott syndrome posed first to his pediatrician with morning emesis, gait instability, and truncal insensitivity. After receiving a gross total resection and standard proton beam radiation therapy with concurrent vindication, he was found to experience brainstem radiation necrosis, for which he underwent radiographic improvement and clinical stabilization. Conclusion: Based on several potential pathologic correlates in the FDG1 pathway, this patient's Aarskog-Scott syndrome and medulloblastoma may have a potential link between this patient's Aarskog-Scott syndrome and medulloblastoma, which should be investigated further.
