Genu valgum picture

Genu valgum is the medical name for knock knees. Knock knees has to do with how the knee lines itself up with the hip and ankle. In a normal standing position, if someone's knees are touching, then their ankles will also touch. In a child with knock knees though, when the knees touch, the ankles are separated by a good distance. Their knees “knock” into one another.

Causes of Genu valgum

Infants start out with bowlegs because of their folded position in the uterus. The infant's bowlegs begin to straighten once the child starts to walk (at about 12 to 18 months). By age 3, the child becomes knock-kneed. When the child stands, the knees touch but the ankles are apart.
