    General Discussion
    Sprengel Deformity is a rare congenital disorder in which the shoulder blade is displaced upward. The elevated shoulder blade causes a lump in the back of the base of the neck and may limit movement of the arm on the affected side. This disorder typically appears at birth for no apparent reason although there have been cases in which the disorder was inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. Other skeletal and muscular abnormalities have been found in association with Sprengel Deformity.
