Achondroplasia is the most common type of rhizomelic dwarfism. The abnormal spinal development of the achondroplastic dwarf can result in neurologic damage due primarily to the following two syndromes: lumbar spinal canal stenosis and thoracolumbar kyphosis. The authors report the cases observed at their institution, discussing the diagnosis and operative treatment.
