Abstract: Pectus excavatum is the most common thoracic deformity. There have been a lot of studies on this deformity in the past. However, the previous research is not comprehensive. With the deepening of cognition, some new clinical features of pectus excavatum were gradually discovered. After years of research, we found that patients with pectus excavatum have three special clinical features, namely scoliosis, hunchback and side lying sleeping position. We found that these three characteristics have a clear causal relationship with pectus excavatum, which has not been found in the past. In order to better understand these features, we named them Wenlin triad. The proposal of the triad is not only helpful to further understand the mechanism of the harm of pectus excavatum, but also helpful to the treatment of pectus excavatum.
