1,378 Possible Causes for Genu Valgum, Platybasia, Some Patients May Be Clinically Asymptomatic

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    It is imperative to consider that some patients, such as our patient described in this report, may be previously asymptomatic clinically and on the basis of laboratory findings[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, severe vitamin D deficiency may manifest as rickets with the below clinical features: Bony Signs - Swelling of wrists and ankles - Leg deformities (genu varum or[starship.org.nz] valgum) - Rachitic rosary in the chest wall ( enlarged costochondral joints) - Delayed tooth eruption (no incisors by aged 10 months, no molars by age 18 months) - Craniotabes[starship.org.nz]

  • Osteomalacia

    The absence of short stature and lower limb deformities in some of these patients suggest a not so intense hypophosphatemia during infancy and childhood (53).[scielo.br] Bowing of the legs (genu varum) is typical, but knock knees (genu valgum) can also occur.[patient.info] A recent study describes the variability in clinical manifestations in one family, including asymptomatic adults, others with bone pain in the sixth decade of life and children[scielo.br]

    A young girl had tibial osteotomies at age 14 for genu valgum and then had recurrent tibial cysts over a number of years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Slipped epiphyses, genu valgum, and femoral and wrist deformities are most common in pre-adolescent children with long-standing CKD [ 24, 45 ].[doi.org]

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta

    These findings are indicative of basilar impression; although marked platybasia is seen, there is no basilar invagination.[doi.org] Physical examination and standing radiographs revealed bilateral genu valgum with previous fixation implants in the femoral and the left tibia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The leg radiograph anteroposterior views (e) show bilateral genu valgum.[doi.org]
