Abstract

Congenital pelvic obliquity is frequent, although pediatricians are not used to diagnose it.

We report four female infants with simple pelvic obliquity. We describe clinical and radiologic findings, their treatment and outcome.

Primary care pediatricians must be alert looking for pelvic obliquity in infants. We need to improve our abilities in hip exploration, to detect instability in the adduct hip (in the opposite of the contractured hip). Is very important to work together: pediatricians, radiologist, orthopedist and rehabilitation physician.
