What's your diagnosis?
It's not rickets.
I'll post the correct answer in a couple of days!
In the post it says it's not rickets ;-)
This is a servere case of gonarthrosis.
In this case, the cartilage in the joints has been severely damaged by inflammatory reactions, causing deformity (called genu varum). Because the patient has two bowlegged deformities, it's likely there's a systemic underlying condition that caused the gonarthrosis.
