Day 2437: Broke Back Mountain

Meet my patient's spine. This teenager was born with scoliosis and it has gotten so bad that his spine now looks like this. You don't have to be in the medical field to recognize a spine gone awry. This kid actually had a hump (or mountain if you will) in the middle of his back from his malformed spine!

The body is amazing when it's created "correctly" and it is equally amazing (if not infinitely more shocking) when it is created "incorrectly."
