Risk associated with these findings are difficult to predict. Many children are diagnosed with hemivertebra incidentally and they may not have any symptoms. The prognosis is directly related to the presence or absence of associated anomalies, especially skeletal/heart abnormalities. The prognosis of isolated hemivertebra is good.
Some babies with similar findings and associated spine/other skeletal abnormalities have muscle weakness/paralysis
of either both legs/one leg, may be associated with urination/motion difficulties.
