The Klippel Feil Support is a website to provide information and support for adults with Klippel-Feil syndrome. This site includes an online support group and information about what Klippel-Feil syndrome is. Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS) is a rare condition that is evident at birth (congenital). KFS is primarily characterized by abnormal union or fusion of two or more bones of the spinal column (vertebrae) within the neck (cervical vertebrae). Some affected individuals may also have an abnormally short neck, restricted movement of the head and neck, and a low hairline at the back of the head (posterior hairline). In some individuals with KFS, the condition may be associated with additional physical abnormalities. These may include abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis), rib defects, or other skeletal abnormalities; hearing impairment; certain malformations of the head and facial (craniofacial) area; or structural abnormalities of the heart (congenital heart defects). In addition, in some cases, neurological complications may result due to associated spinal cord injury.
