I’ve been using the phrase “club foot” to describe Jesse’s foot, but I’ve recently discovered that may not be correct.
Medically, the term is “talipes”
talipes /tal·i·pes/ (tal´ĭ-pēz) a congenital deformity in which the foot is twisted out of shape or position; it may be in dorsiflexion (t. calca´neus), in plantar flexion (t. equi´nus), abducted and everted (t. val´gus or flatfoot), abducted and inverted (t. va´rus), or various combinations (t. calcaneoval´gus, t. calcaneova´rus, t. equinoval´gus, or t. equinova´rus) .
However, this condition is commonly called _______?:
a) “club foot”
c) “clubbed foot”
I’m asking you, my readers, to help me. What is the right term?
