Answer

Consult an immunologist to evaluate for immune deficiency. In addition, an orthopedic surgeon should be consulted for bone dysplasia. Genu varum, with or without knee pain, is the most common reason a patient with CHH will seek orthopaedic consultation. [44] A geneticist should also be consulted.
