Genu Valgum

Genu Valgum is the condition where there is an angular deformity in the knee when the feet are widely separated, but the knees are in contact.

It is most common in children from ages 3-8, but can also be present in adults. Trauma, or any prior injuries that have made the knee more vulnerable or caused muscle imbalance can increase the likelihood of Genu Valgum.
