Caption: Obese person's lower leg. X-ray of the leg of a 23 year old patient who weighs 175 kilograms. At top centre is the femur (thigh bone), at centre is the tibia (shin bone), with the smaller fibula to its left. The ankle is at bottom centre. Folds of fat and skin are seen around the bone. The knee (upper centre) appears damaged; the space between the femur and tibia should be even on both sides. Obesity can damage joints due to the extra pressure put on them, often leading to osteoarthritis.
