Abstract

Background: Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a genetic disorder causing multisystem abnormalities with obesity. Obesity is a well established cause of Blount disease. Methods: A 7-year-old girl with PWS presented with genu varum of the left knee with deformity of the proximal medial tibial condyle, which was consistent with Blount disease. Results: A lateral physeal stapling and subsequent osteotomy for the left proximal tibia and fibula were performed with improved anatomical alignment. Conclusion: Blount disease has not been reported in the literature in association with PWS despite excessive obesity.
