The condition where the foot or feet of the newborn seem to be rotated internally at the ankle, he or she has clubfoot.
This condition is when the foot points inwards and downwards while the soles face each other.
The other term is congenital equinovarus (CTEV), or talipes equinovarus (TEV). Almost 50% of all cases affect both feet.
Symptoms of infants:
* The heel is positioned inward and the arch is more pronounced
* The top part of the foot is twisted inwards and downwards
* Foot may seem upside downward for severe cases
Genetics: If the firstborn of a couple has clubfoot, it is likely for the preceding babies will also have a similar condition.
Gender: As compared to females, males are more likely to develop clubfoot.
The cause is unknown but genetic factors played a huge role.
Without treatment, the condition may not improve. Treatment must be done on the first weeks of birth.
