Congenital club foot is among the most common developmental deformities in which affected children have abnormal bone arrangement. The worldwide clubfoot prevalence is around 0.6 to 1.5 per 1000 live births and around 1.4-1.5 per 1,000 live births in Pakistan. The need for this case study was to see the effect of Ponseti technique in a neglected clubfoot case where bony surgical procedures are mostly recommended to improve the deformity. After evaluation, the child was diagnosed with right clubfoot deformity. Conservative treatment using Ponseti method was initiated with weekly follow up followed by soft tissue release and post-operative casting. Now the child can bear her weight and walk properly.
