A 24-year-old female with severe kyphosis (165°) and respiratory dysfunction. After 6 weeks of HPT, the kyphosis had decreased to 55°, the scoliosis had decreased from 64° to 54°, and the FVC% had significantly increased from 34.10 to 44.69%. Posterior correction with Ponte osteotomy and instrumentation was performed. After the surgery, the kyphosis had decreased to 48°, the scoliosis had decreased to 42°
