Syndromes with musculoskeletal implications were diagnosed in 328,600 children and adolescent health care visits in 2012, of which 126,300 had a primary diagnosis of a syndrome condition. About 1 in 10 (9%) children and adolescents with any syndrome with musculoskeletal implications diagnoses were hospitalized (29,800), but less than 1% (600) with a primary diagnosis of a syndrome with musculoskeletal implications had a hospital discharge. (Reference Table 7.1.1 PDF CSV and Table 7.1.2 PDF CSV)

Males, more than females, had a hospital discharge with any syndrome with musculoskeletal implications diagnoses. Infants and young children under the age of 5 years had the highest rate of hospitalization for any diagnoses of syndromes with musculoskeletal implications. The number of hospitalizations with a primary diagnosis was too small for analysis by sex and age.

Any diagnoses of syndromes with musculoskeletal implications accounted for 6% of hospitalizations for any musculoskeletal condition diagnosis, and 0.4% of all hospitalizations for any health care condition. Hospitalizations with a primary diagnosis were 0.1% of all musculoskeletal diagnoses. (Reference Table 7.6 PDF CSV)
