    What's your diagnosis?

    It's not rickets.

    Correct answer:

    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.
