Congenital talipes equinovarus, commonly known as club foot, is a foot deformity in which the foot is twisted inward with the toes pointing down. It affects approximately 1 in every 1,000 newborns in the US each year. It is more common in males. Club foot may affect one or both feet. In 30% to 50% of affected children, it involves both feet.
This condition sometimes runs in families. If one child in the family has club foot, the likelihood of another child having this condition increases to 10%.
