Klippel-Feil syndrome is a condition involving fusion of cervical vertebrae and associated changes in neck length and mobility, with low hairline posteriorly. The condition is usually sporadic but may be autosomal dominant or recessive. Several genes have been identified; the search for other candidate genes is ongoing. On occasion, Klippel-Feil syndrome is associated with other anomalies or conditions, thus, complicating the clinical course.
