The effect of genetic factors on hip dislocation, acetabular dysplasia, and developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) has long been recognized. In this report, we presented a large family that showed single gene inheritance for DDH. Pedigree analysis of a pregnant woman revealed a history of DDH in 16 members of the family. Although the pedigree showed autosomal dominant inheritance with reduced penetrance, the prevalence of DDH was considerably high, almost accounting for one-third of the family members, and skipping only one generation. Of 16 cases, three patients were diagnosed at our center. The remaining 13 patients were diagnos . . .ed at other centers. Dislocation was diagnosed very late in most of the family members, while four cases were diagnosed at birth. All family members were informed by a detailed clinical letter and recommended evaluation for DDH at every birth. © 2007 Türk Ortopedi ve Travmatoloji Dernegi

Rotational deformities are common lower extremity abnormalities in children with cerebral palsy, which include intoeing and outtoeing. Intoeing is caused by one of the three types of deformity: increased femoral anteversion, internal tibial torsion, and metatarsus varus, while outtoeing, the less common form, is caused by femoral retroversion and external tibial torsion. An accurate diagnosis should be made with careful physical and radiographic examination. © 2009 Turkish Association of Orthopaedics and Traumatology.
