Abstract

Children often present to health care providers for evaluation of limp. Having the knowledge of the different causes of leg pains both in the acute and chronic settings will help in diagnosis, treatment, and referrals to subspecialists in a timely manner. Taking a detailed history and completing a thorough evaluation will help hone in on the underlying cause. This article will review important causes of limp from the rheumatologist's viewpoint.
