Birds of a Feather

Hello Case of the Day Readers! 

Thank you for following this blog. I apologize for the irregularity of posts recently. It's been busy and now I'm out of the country on a medical mission, but I will try to keep the cases going. Since my medical mission involves pediatric orthopedics, here's a case for you:


This 1-year old girl has this finding on both feet. Her mother is a 32 year old healthy G1P1 and the pregnancy and delivery were uncomplicated.

Challenge: What's your diagnosis?

Birds of a Feather

The image shows in-toeing or pigeon toeing as a result of metatarsus adductus, medial deviation of the forefoot. The foot has a “kidney bean” or “C” shape.
