Figure 1 (a–c) Preoperative clinical photographs of a 32-year-old female patient with sequelae of septic arthritis in childhood affecting the right hip joint. The patient had flexion, adduction, and internal rotation deformities and apparent limb-length discrepancy of 12 cm. (d) Postoperative photograph shows application of Ilizarov frame, valgization of the lower limb due to the proximal osteotomy, and reduction of the limb-length discrepancy to 4 cm after undoing of hip ankylosis. (e) A photograph after 4-cm lengthening and varization for correction limb alignment. (f, g) Follow-up photographs show the functional outcome.
