Klippel-Feil Syndrome was first noted by two doctors (hence the
name) in 1912. This is a congenital fusion of the vertebrae. It is a syndrome because often other congenital conditions
are co-occuring. These include: cleft palate/lip, curvature of the spine, painless restiction of neck and/or trunk movement,
low posterior hairline, webbing of the neck, short neck, involuntary synkenesis (mirror movement of extremeties), hearing
loss, vision problems, heart defects, renal/urinary defects, facial assymetry, speech problems, and others.
