Bowed legs

This condition is easy to see because of a outward bowing of the lower leg. However, children aged between 3 and 4 have a certain degree of bowed legs (Genu Varum in medical terms) but as the child grows, the bones in the legs develop and this slight outward bowing should disappear. If a child has any type of illness (such as rickets) that prevents ossification of the bones, or is malnourished in any way then this can affect the proper development of their legs.
