Internal tibial torsion

Internal tibial torsion

Tibial torsion can not be evaluated clinically, so the malleolar position is used as a surrogate. The malleoli are normally rotated externally 18-25° in adults when the femoral condyles are in the frontal plane and the knee fully extended – usually 0-5° at birth
May be associated with a femoral anteversion.
