Camptocormia is a medical condition that is characterized by forward flexion of the spine, which is noticeable when standing or walking but disappears when lying down.[1][2] It is becoming an increasingly recognized feature of herniation of an intervertebral disc (usually in the thoracic or upper lumbar spine), Parkinson's disease and dystonic disorders.[2]

The term camptocormia was introduced by Alexandre-Achille Souques, a French neurologist, to describe an abnormal forward-flexed posture.[3]
