The limping child often presents to the emergency department with a nonspecific history and physical examination. The components of gait, the pathophysiology of specific abnormalities, and the conditions that may produce long-term morbidity must be identified expeditiously to assure return to normal function. Ancillary data and imaging may be essential for appropriate management.
