Club foot is a common congenital abnormality, and a complex deformity. In the past twenty years, the deformity has been better classified by considering the different components of deformity. The Pirani scoring system is widely used--and analogous standardised photographic views can be used to document this condition and its progress. Here I describe four views that aid in deformity assessment, correlating to component deformities assessed in the Pirani score.
