JIMENEZ GONZALEZ, Mª. M. et al. Camptocormia: a infrequent muscular disease. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2002, vol.19, n.9, pp.38-40. ISSN 0212-7199.

The camptocormia is an entity characterized by a kyphosis lumbar reductible in supine decubitus, associated to dysfunctions in computed tomography scans and histologics in the paravertebrals muscles of the lumbar segment. We contribute a new case corresponding to a 70 year-old woman with chronic lumbar pain and kyphosis dorsolumbar reductible, in who the on-line tomography showed compatible images with fatty degeneration and atrophy of the lumbar musculature, discoveries that were confirmed in the histologic study.

Palabras clave : Camptocormia; Reductible kyphosis.
