Breaks or fractures may also cause bow legs if they are not healed properly. Ricketts can also cause bone deformities resulting in bow legs. Physiologic genu verum is a health condition which is considered as one of the most common causes of bow legs seen in case of children under the age 2. Fluoride, lead poisoning, tumours, obesity, arthritis and infection can also cause bow legs.
