Congenital vertical talus is defined as a foot deformity in which the calcaneus is in equinus, the talus is plantarflexed, and there is a rigid and irreducible dislocation of the talonavicular joint complex, with the navicular articulating on the dorsolateral aspect of the talar neck. It is often associated with systemic involvement.


To identify the most common anomalies accompanying to CVT (Congenital Vertical Talus). No literature investigating similar clinical data was found in the literature review.

Study design

CVT has a systemic effect and is accompanied by many anomalies. At the same time as this study, anomalies were frequently found accompanying CVT. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prenatal, natal and postnatal clinical findings associated with Congenital Vertical Talus.


Between 2012 and 2018, a total of 20 CVT patients (12 males, 8 females) were included in the study. Children between the ages of 0 and 18 who applied to the dysmorphology clinic for the study were included.


Five parameters associated with CVT were detected in this study. These include intrauterine growth retardation, hypoxic birth history, hypotonia, microcephaly and cryptorchidism.


A detailed and multidisciplinary approach to CVT is required.
