Abstract

Neglected congenital clubfoot in adults has been described in literature, but is not common to see adult patients with this orthopaedic disorder in developed countries with 30 years of follow-up. We report an asymptomatic case of neglected congenital clubfoot in an adult, who is incidentally seeking treatment for her 18-month-old son with congenital clubfoot. Although the cosmetic appearance is unacceptable, this mother remarkably has no functional limitations and for this reason she refuses any surgical treatment for her foot. To our knowledge, this is the first report of an untreated congenital clubfoot with 30 years follow-up.
