This historic image that was captured in 1970, depicts the legs of a child who was suffering from malnutrition, and has manifested symptoms of the disease known as nutritional rickets. Note the child’s bowed legs, or varus deformity at the knee joint. Nutritional rickets is a condition in which children's bones become too soft, and do not develop properly, due to a deficiency of vitamin D.
