PATHOLOGICAL CHANGES OF MUSCLES IN THE COMMON DISEASES OF CHILDREN: Their Relationship to Scoliosis.

In a study of the musculature supporting the spinal column, pathological changes in the muscular tissue were found at autopsy in sixty-three of 100 children who died of the usual diseases of childhood. In most of these cases, complete healing would probably have occurred if the children had recovered. Where complete healing of these pathological changes does not occur, or occurs slowly, the resultant muscular weakness may be the cause of scoliosis.
