Hi welcome to HCMForum. the possibilities of this condition are polio injury florosis and t.b. most
probable diagnosis at this age is t.b. but the diagnosis depends upon onset occurance of age
history of injury occurance to any one else in the living area. I advise you to consult an
orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. thanks for calling.
