Sprengel deformity (SD), also known as congenital high scapula, is a rare congenital deformity of one or both scapulae that appears at birth. It is the most common congenital deformity of the shoulder. This condition occurs due to the failure of the scapula to descend during intrauterine development. SD often appears randomly, but familial cases have also been described. In addition to the aesthetic problem due to SD, the main problem is the limitation of the shoulder and cervical spine joints movement. Conditions such as Klippel-Feil syndrome, congenital scoliosis, kidney diseases, and diastemetomiyelia are frequently associated with this disease. In this report, we present the rehabilitation results of an 11-year-old girl who was operated for correction of SD.
