    Scrotum is seen little large. This may be bilateral congenital hydrocele.

    Correct answer:

    Congenital hip luxation.

    There are two clues in the picture: first, there's a skin fold near the child's groin that is characteristic in this condition. Also, it can be seen that the examiner performs the Ortolani maneuver.

    Congenital hip luxation is a condition with a complex etiology, in which there's an increased resilience of the joint structures. It must be recognised early, otherwise permanent malformation of the joint can occur.
