What is Blount's Disease?

Description of the disease

Blount's disease is a pediatric orthopedic condition characterized by deformation of the lower limbs. It manifests as asymmetry in the growth of the thigh and shin bones, leading to different leg lengths.


Blount's disease is classified into two types: congenital and acquired forms.


  • Asymmetry in the lower limbs
  • Different leg lengths
  • Limping


The exact causes of Blount's disease are not established. It is presumed to be linked to genetic factors or bone growth abnormalities.


Diagnosis is based on examination by an orthopedic doctor, X-rays, and computerized tomography.


Treatment of Blount's disease may include conservative methods (wearing orthopedic shoes, physiotherapy) or surgical intervention (bone deformity correction).


Preventing Blount's disease involves a conscious approach to an active lifestyle, proper posture, and preventing lower limb injuries.


Treatment for Blount's disease is provided by an orthopedic doctor and a pediatric surgeon.
