Clubfoot

Clubfoot and normal foot

Clubfoot (also called
talipes equinovarus) is a general term used to describe a range of unusual
positions of the foot. Each of the following characteristics may be present,
and each may vary from mild to severe:

  • The foot (especially the heel) is usually smaller
    than normal.
  • The foot may point downward.
  • The front of
    the foot may be rotated toward the other foot.
  • The foot may turn in
    and, in extreme cases, the bottom of the foot can point up.
