Cavus Foot

Cavus foot is a condition in which the child has an excessively high arch. In many cases, the heel of the foot is turned inward; this is known as cavo-varus foot. The condition frequently affects both feet and is often progressive. Because the foot is not properly aligned, patients experience pain and develop calluses owing to uneven weight-bearing. Ankle sprains or even stress fractures may occur.
