Blount's Disease (Tibia Vara)
Blount's disease is a growth disorder of the shin bone (tibia) in which the lower leg turns inward, resembling a bowleg. Blount's disease occurs in young children and adolescents. The cause is unknown but is thought to be due to the effects of weight on the growth plate. The inner part of the shin bone, just below the knee, fails to develop normally. Unlike bowlegs, which tend to straighten as the child develops, Blount's disease slowly gets worse. It can cause severe bowing of one or both legs.
