Levoscoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine to the left side of the body in the lower back or lumbar spine.
In severe cases, the ribcage will protrude to the left, potentially compressing the heart and lungs. This will result in breathing difficulties and chest pain. As the head and body tilt to one side, the shoulders will be uneven in height.
Levoscoliosis is most commonly found in young girls and less in boys. In some cases, levoscoliosis can occur along with dextroscoliosis.
