Our six-year-old child was mm with a marked Indentation n his chest. He is in good health and it doesn't bother him. Still, we wonder U anything can e done about it. Mrs. L.I., Wash. Dear Mrs. I.: The Trent of the chest wall .s called the sternum. Deformities of the shape of this bone are not. unusual. Sometimes the chest bulges out with a prominence which is called a "pigeon herast," The condition you describe is known as "pectus excavatum," or deep funnel in the chest wall. ORGANS DISPLACED Only occasionally are. the vl tal organs of the heart and the lungs displaced by Ihe pressure of the funnel chest. When' this occurs surgical repair is need ed. Even in the absence of com pression symptoms, many doc ors consider surgery . so tha he child might be free of th embarrassment that may ac company it. Some children feel stigmati? ed and therefore may refus to socialize or play games tha may make their deformit more apparent.
