19 Possible Causes for Genu Valgum, Some Patients May Be Clinically Asymptomatic

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    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] 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] 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]

  • Spastic Flat Foot

    patients present in adulthood, or may even be asymptomatic.[radsource.us] valgum Genu varum Medial rotated walking gait Attention deficit Reduced sensory abilities Co-ordination disturbances Bad postural alignment Prescription indication 1.[shoetech.com.au] Genu valgum (being knock-kneed) - this is usually benign and normally resolves by the age of 5-8 years; surgery may be appropriate if the condition is persistent by age 10[patient.info]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

  • Reis-Bucklers Corneal Dystrophy

    In some cases, clinical findings may mimic corneal intraepithelial dysplasia, and removed material should be submitted for histology.[entokey.com] The disease has been linked with hypercholesterolemia, hyperlipidemia and genu valgum in some patients (2,5,9,10).[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] MANAGEMENT Asymptomatic patients may not require treatment. For patients with irregular astigmatism, corneal debridement may be necessary.[entokey.com]

  • Hypophosphatemia

    In infants and children, the signs and symptoms include: Abnormal "waddling" walk due to knock-knees (genu valgum) or bowed legs (genu varum) Thick wrists Ribs of the chest[dovemed.com] 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] The most characteristic findings include: growth retardation, deformities in upper and lower limbs (genu varum or genu valgum) generally noted when the infant begins to creep[scielo.br]

  • Congenital Absence of Ductus Arteriosus

    , some of these anomalies may lead to various clinical symptoms such as recurrent abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting.[synapse.koreamed.org] : valgum varum Rudimentary patella Excl.: congenital: dislocation of knee (Q68.2) genu recurvatum (Q68.2) nail patella syndrome (Q87.2) Q74.2 Other congenital malformations[embryology.med.unsw.edu.au] Abstract Though congenital anomalies of the pancreas and pancreatic duct are relatively uncommon and they are often discovered as an incidental finding in asymptomatic patients[synapse.koreamed.org]
