Abstract

MACIAS LOPEZ, Ma. Milagros. DISMORFOGÉNESIS DE HOMBRO EN UNA NIÑA MOMIFICADA. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2000, vol.32, n.1, pp.89-96. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562000000100015.

A mummified girl of five years old is analyzed in this report. She shows an antialgesic position. The radiologic and CAT examination revealed several genetic anomalies on the right shoulder and hemithorax of the same side. All of them are compatible with Sprengel's disease. Likewise we identified a right shoulder dislocation which was likely produced at the time of death. We propose an epileptic status as a possible cause for both of them

Keywords : Shoulder dismorphogenesis; antero-posterior shoulder dislocation; Sprengel's disease; mummy; paleopathology; convulsions.
