Scoliosis can be genetic but is not usually diagnosed in children under 10 years of age. When it occurs in infants it is important to exclude neuromuscular illnesses or muscular dystrophy. Your baby's history of 4 severe chest infections must be taken seriously and a cause searched for. These neuromuscular conditions must be excluded as well as other illnesses such as cystic fibrosis. You must take her back to your paediatrician who needs to make sure that your daughter does not have an underlying reason for her illness or she needs to be seen by a paediatric pulmonologist in order to make the correct diagnosis.I am sorry to add to your heavy medical expenses but this is essential for your baby's health.
