    Abstract

    We describe a rare case of ischemic fasciitis of the abdominal wall in a child with scoliosis. The fasciitis was apparently caused by the constant pressure exerted by her torso brace. Clinicians should be alert to the possibility of mechanical factors in the etiology of ischemic fasciitis.
