knock-knee or genu valgum


Explanation:
(deutsch) Genu valgum
(englisch) knock-knee, in knee, genu valgum, tragopodia, gonycrotesis

If you are dealing with a medical text that discusses the effects of ricketts, you might wish to use one of the Latin terms such as genu valgum or gonycrotesis (and genu varum or gonyectyposis for O-Beine, the subject of your other query).

Genu valgum (Genu*) n: sog. X-Bein;
Urs.: angeboren (einseitig als Hinweis auf eine angeborene Hüftgelenkluxation), bei Rachitis, Hypogonadismus, Knochendysplasien, Myopathien, nach Hüftadduktionskontraktur, Paralysen, kompensatorisch bei Knick-Senk-Fuß; auch einseitig nach Traumen, langandauernder Fehlbelastung u. inf. Fehlwachstums bei epiphysären Störungen;
Ther.: Behandlung der Grunderkrankung; im Kindesalter supinierende Einlagen (gute Tendenz zur Spontankorrektur); im Erwachsenenalter korrigierende Osteotomie*.
