Objective: make a review of the main neurological diseases associated with neuromuscular scoliosis and perioperative care during scoliosis correction surgeries. Method: Non-systematic review using a Google Scholar platform for articles with the descriptor “neuromuscular scoliosis” in the journal title. Results and Discussion: 46 articles in English and 3 articles in Portuguese were used for this review. Conclusion: Neuromuscular scoliosis has the fastest course of evolution, higher rates of disability and higher rates of complications in corrective surgery when compared to idiopathic scoliosis. The knowledge of neurological diseases more associated with neuromuscular scoliosis helps in its early detection and its long-term monitoring.
