A prominence, formed by a deviation of the bones of the trunk. Commonly, it is formed by the spine or sternum, and is seated at the posterior or anterior part of the trunk. It may, also, be produced by deviation of the ribs or pelvis. The spine may be curved in three principal directions. 1. Backwards, the most common case, Cyphosis, Gibbositas. 2. Forwards,Lordosis, Recurvatio; and 3. Laterally, Scoliosis, Obstipatio. Most curvatures occur at a very early age, and are caused by scrofula, rickets, &c.; and, not unfrequently, they are accompanied by caries of the vertebrae. See Vertebral disease. One who is affected with a hump, or is humpbacked, Humpty, Huckshouldered, Shrump-shouldered, (Sc.) Hulgiebacked, Trudge-backed, (Prov.) Croopbacked, is called, by the French, bossu.
