Yes! Many of you got this one! Congenital talipes equinovarus or clubfoot which really translates to horse foot is a developmental disorder of the lower limb. It can be seen as an additional feature in genetic syndromes or it can also occur alone in an otherwise healthy baby. It is not always 100% known why club foot occurs, although it can be just due to the position of the baby within the mothers uterus. If you or a family member was born with club foot, there is a chance it can pop up again in your family which leads to believe there is some genetic predisposition. When a baby is born with club foot it needs to be addressed immediately. Club foot doesn’t just go away or straighten itself out over time, it needs to be fixed. It does not hurt the baby at first, but over time untreated it can become painful and lead to problems with walking, playing, shoes fitting, etc. Usually after club foot is treated there is not a recurrence, although a fun fact is that this foot usually is smaller than the other foot (up to 1.5 sizes smaller!)
