Residual paralysis of the lower limb following poliomyelitis is one of the common causes of limb length discrepancy in developing countries. Das (1958) in a review of 200 cases of poliomyelitis, reported lower limb shortening in 47 children (23.5 per cent) out of 112 with unilateral lower limb involvement.
