Abstract

CONGENITAL DEFORMITIES 

Torticollis.  —Von Lackum1 advocated early operative treatment for torticollis and reported four cases in infants ranging in age from 5 weeks to 5 months in whom the scar of the belly of the sternomastoid was excised. None of the cases had responded to manipulative measures. The injury was found to be sharply limited within the sheath of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. No attempt was made to suture the ends of the muscle after excision of the scar.

Cleidocranial Dysostosis.  —Fitchet2 reported eight additional cases of this anomaly, six of which occurred in three generations of one family. The article furnishes an excellent review of the literature.

Congenital Dislocation of the Hip.  —Putti3 made a plea for earlier treatment in congenital dislocation of the hip. In certain parts of Italy, through educational propaganda, people bring their small children for examination on the slightest suggestion of an abnormality.
