What Is Clubfoot?
Congenital clubfoot is a term used to describe a variety of ankle and foot deformities present at birth. The bones, joints, muscles, and blood vessels of the foot are incorrectly formed. The defect may be mild or severe and affect one or both feet. The foot of an affected child has been described as 'kidney shaped.' The foot and calf are also often noticeably smaller. A clubfoot is usually turned in, stiff, and lacks the normal range of motion.
