Армасов А.Р., Киселев В.Я.


The incidence of longitudinal platypodia in adolescents amounts to 17-81%, according to the reported data. If platypodia is suspected in the absence of complaints during foot examination, additional methods of study should be indicated. Visual estimation has high percentage of errors and can lead to the failure of the pathology diagnosis.
