Juvenile blount disease related to obesity in a 6-years-old girl

Abstract

Blount disease is a rare growth disorder of the medial aspect of the proximal tibial physis, with abrupt medial angulation leading to varus angulation of the proximal tibia and medial rotation of the tibia. Multiple factors such as ethnicity, genetics, and mechanical stress are thought to be contributing element to this disease. Treatment depends on the age of the patient and severity of the condition. A diagnosis of Blount disease is based on clinical, laboratory and standing alignment of x-ray. The natural history of untreated Blount disease is progressive and non-resolving varus deformity which produce joint deformity and growth retardation. Proper management of patient with obese and Blount disease is nutritional and surgical procedure. Hereby we presented a six year old girl with juvenile blount disease related to obesity.
