This is a one of the most common foot deformities in children (problem with the shape of the foot) wherein the foot points upward and outward. In extreme cases, the top of the foot touches the front of the lower leg. The condition is congenital, meaning your child was born with it. It may affect one or both feet. Calcaneovalgus causes the baby no pain, and often goes away on its own.
This foot defect, present at birth has no symptoms.
The main cause is thought to be squeezing of the foot due to the child's being "packed" in the uterus during the last few months of pregnancy. Calcaneovalgus runs in families, and more girls than boys have it.
Calcaneovalgus is easily found by looking at the foot when the child is born. The doctor will rule out other congenital deformities of the foot.
Non Operative Treatment:
If diagnosed and treated, the child's foot usually works well and looks normal. If it doesn't go away, calcaneovalgus can cause problems with muscle development and walking. So your child should see the doctor for regular follow-up visits to be sure the problem goes away.
