Kyphoscoliosis is a complication of some bone dysplasias, including Cleido-cranial dysplasia (CCD). We report on massive spinal dysplasia secondary to severe spinal dyssygmentation associated with marked defective ossification of the ischium, detected in a Tunisian female child with a severe form of Cleido-cranial dysplasia. Literature review on Cleido cranial dysplasia and associated spinal abnormalities showed no previous similar reports as encountered in our patient.

Keywords: Cleido cranial, dysplasia, spinal dyssygmentation, defective ossification of the ischium, kyphoscoliosis
