B Cubitus varus deformity This deformity is secondary to a malunited fracture. The child is unaware of any problem. ” D Limp This child had an obscure limp. The bone scan demonstrated increased uptake over the tibia consistent with a toddler’s fracture (arrow). indd 26 Deformity is classified as either functional or structural. Functional deformity is secondary to muscle contracture or spasm-producing fixation of a joint in an abnormal position. For example, a fixed hip adductor contracture elevates the pelvis on the affected side, producing a functional shortening of the limb.

With one hand on the pelvis and other holding onto the leg, extend the leg until the pelvis starts to elevate. The horizontal–thigh angle demonstrates the degree of contracture. Prone extension test Thigh–Foot Angle This is a measure of tibial and hindfoot rotation. See Chapter 4. D Prone extension This test assesses hip flexion contracture. With the contralateral hip flexed, extend the ipsilateral side to the degree that causes the pelvis to elevate. The degrees short of full extension equal the degrees of contracture.

This test is commonly used to assess a neurologic basis for spinal deformity. Anvil Test This tests for the localization of discitis. Percussion on top of the head causes pain at the site of discitis. Tibial length Femoral length Galeazzi sign B Assessing femoral and tibial lengths Note the difference in tibial and femoral lengths as observed at the flexed knee.
