Kyphosis There are three main types of abnormal kyphosis: postural kyphosis, Scheuermann's kyphosis, and congenital kyphosis. Kyphosis is an exaggeration or angulations of the posterior curve of the thoracic spine, giving rise to the condition commonly known as humpback, hunchback, or Pott’s curvature. It may be due to a congenital anomaly, disease, malignancy or compression fracture. Kyphosis also refers to an excessive curvature of the spine with convexity backward, which may result from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, rickets, or other conditions. Postural kyphosis is the most common type of kyphosis.
