SCD is an autosomal-recessive disorder characterized by defects in the vertebrae and abnormalities of the ribs in the form of segmental fusion, malalignment, or absence of a few ribs. These patients are prone to pulmonary insufficiency and repeated infections. Close anesthetic vigil is also needed to maintain optimal ventilation during surgery.
