Congenital Foot Deformities Talipes / Clubfoott » Foot Q66.-

Definition:

Although rare, the clubfoot is difficult to define, confused with normal position of the foot of the newborn. This requires a detailed description of the deformities of the foot. See definitions below. Do not write "clubfoot" because it is imprecise.
Notes:
Despite their frequency, club feet are not easy to define, as they can often be mistakenly considered as the normal position of the newborn´s foot. Do not use incomplete descriptions, such as club foot. Use talipes or equinovarus [Q66.0], talovalgus [Q66.4], cavus [Q66.7], or rockerbottom foot [Q66.8], etc.
