Case clasp knife


Clasp-knife deformity is relatively common anomaly found at the lumbosacral junction and characterized by a large midline defect of the posterior arch of the sacrum (usually S1/S2 and occasionally S3) along with hypertrophy (or overgrowth) of the spinous process of the vertebra above (usually L5) 1-2.

When a clasp-knife deformity is accompanied by pain on extension secondary to protrusion of the enlarged spinous process (knife blade) into the sacral spinal canal, it is called clasp-knife syndrome 2.

History and etymology

The term of clasp-knife deformity was coined by G.W. Henry in 1958 as an analogy to the blade of a pocket (clasp) knife folding into its handle 3, 4.
