Case Study #18
You are an LPN/LVN working in a pediatrician’s office. Mrs. Pfeiffer has brought her son Robbie in for his 1 year “well-baby” examination. She reports that Robbie has been taking steps and “cruising” along furniture for the past two months, and he took his first steps just a couple of weeks ago. She is concerned because Robbie “looks bow-legged and pigeon-toed. His feet are just so flat.” She says, “All my brothers have flat feet, and I’m concerned. I also have a first cousin with muscular dystrophy. I worry about that for Robbie.”
What information about normal development of the human musculoskeletal system does Glenda need?
You explain to the mother that it may be too early to know whether Robbie has muscular dystrophy. Glenda is interested in learning more about the disorder. What points will you include in your teaching?
