Abstract: Wenlin chest is a rare congenital thoracic deformity, which used to be regarded as a kind of pectus carinatum. After its own particularity was gradually recognized, some new names appeared in clinic. We have received many such patients. To facilitate our work, we named it as Wenlin chest. This deformity may be combined with malformations of other parts of the body, and scoliosis is a possible concomitant deformity. We treated a Wenlin chest patient who had undergone plastic surgery due to scoliosis. We carried out the operation of thoracic deformity for him and obtained satisfactory results.
