Alteration or deformation of a portion, organ, or the body as a whole from its normal shape. It could be congenital or acquired. Deformity usually indicates the existence of a bone fracture, bone dislocation, or both if it develops following an injury.

A secondary bending or alteration of shape is referred to as a deformity in congenital diseases. These frequently entail oligohydramnios (lack of amniotic fluid), which protects the foetus from the uterine wall’s pressure and may result from leaking or failure to create fluid.

Broken bones that don’t heal properly, osteoarthritis (a condition that degenerates the joints), and diseases including cancer and thyroid disorders that result in the formation of tumours, goitres, or other masses are common causes of acquired deformities. While many acquired abnormalities are invisible, some may be. Cleft lips and palates, clubfeet, spina bifida, and spinal abnormalities like scoliosis, kyphosis, and hyperlordosis are examples of common congenital malformations.
