Spondyloptosis is an exceeding rare condition and more so ever publications concerning spondylolisthesis in preschool children are sparse in the existing literature, mostly in form of case reports.The management of high-grade lumbosacral spondylolisthesis and spondyloptosis still remains a surgical challenge involving considerable controversies. We report a case of dysplastic L5-S1 spondyloptosis in a 3-year-old girl and its surgical management. To the author’s best knowledge, the present case is the youngest to have undergone surgical management for L5-S1 spondyloptosis in the existing literature.
