If you have a club foot, are you also more likely to have other leg development problems?

In brief: Usually not

Club foot is usually an isolated deformity, although it can be associated with meningomyelocele most frequently.
Sometimes, what appears to be a true club foot is actually a deformation from position in utero that is reversible without surgery.

In brief: Club foot

Club foot is a birth defect that occurs in 1 out of 1000 births in the us with boys being twice as affected as girls.
There is no way to determine if a new born will have a club foot unless a sibling had the same disorder. In such an instance, there is a 2.5% chance of another sibling having a club foot. Usually the opposite foot is normal, but there can be mild cases of metatarsus adductus.
