Abstract: Prenatal ultrasound diagnosis of clubfoot is increasing. Of 103 patients with clubfoot diagnosed at birth, 26 (25.2%) positive prenatal scans were identified with the earliest diagnosis being made at 15 weeks. A questionnaire assessment indicated that 17 (65.4%) deemed that the explanation of the baby's condition was clear. With an increasing incidence of antenatal detection, it is suggested that parents require adequate antenatal counseling by a specialist in the area of clubfoot to improve the understanding of the natural history and treatment of this condition.
