Many types of equinus exist in the pediatric population. This article reviews the causes, clinical and radiographic evaluation, and treatment of pediatric equinus deformity. It discusses the conservative and surgical management of the different types of equinus and when these treatments are best employed. The underlying pathophysiology for each equinus case must be understood to ensure that the treatment is appropriate.
