Untreated clubfoot. Feet of an adult with clubfoot (talipes equinovarus), a birth defect in which one or both feet are twisted out of position. It can range from mild and flexible to severe and rigid. The cause is not known, but it may be a result of pressure on the feet of the foetus in the uterus or it may be inherited. Clubfoot is usually treated at an early age, either by splinting or strapping the affected feet, or with surgery to cut the ligaments and tendons.
