Limp is a common presentation in Paediatrics. Fortunately for the majority it will represent a benign problem that settles with minimal or no intervention. It may be as simple as poorly fitting new shoes or a verruca. However, in amongst the self limiting problems are relatively rare but potentially devastating diagnoses such as joint infection or malignancy. To have a reasonable chance of picking up on these at an early stage requires a thorough approach to every limping child. This article will review the key points that are important to consider when approaching a child with a limp.
