Description of clubfoot

Clubfoot is a defect that causes a baby's foot to be abnormal. Clubfoot is present at birth and can be in one or both feet. Most cases of clubfoot are painless. A baby with clubfoot usually has smaller feet than normal. Many people with clubfoot have a foot that points downward or that is turned in. In some very extreme cases the bottom foot points up.
