Pes Equinovarus


Congenital Pes equınovarus is one of the more common congenital deformities of the foot. The exact etiopathology of pes equınovarus is unknown. Treatment should be started as soon as possible. Twelve feet of ten patients who were admitted to our clinic for congenital pes eqwnovaros were reviewed. Etio-pathology, incidence and treatment were discussed in view of the literature.
