Abstract

This patient presented with primary complaints consistent with cervical radiculopathy. However, due to the severity of the neurologic findings and presence of myelomalacia, the patient was not treated. The patient had not previously been diagnosed with KF syndrome, although he presented clinically with many of the congenital issues commonly associated with the condition. This case demonstrates the vital importance of differential diagnostic skills as well as the need to continue fostering improved communication and integration of care among various clinical disciplines for patients presenting with challenging symptoms.
