The aim of this study was to consider Leg length difference (LLD), varus and We examined leg length difference (LLD), varus and valgus knee and foot deformities in athletes with and without patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS).Twenty three healthy participants (7 women and 16 men) and 15 patients (3 women and 12 men) with PFPS ranging in age from 20 to 30 years participated in this study. Leg length difference, genu varum, genu valgum, foot pronation and flat foot were measured and the groups were compared.No significant differences were demonstrated in LLD, genu varum, genu valgum, foot pronation and flat foot between the two groups.Our findings suggest that abnormal biomechanics of lower limb do not increase the risk of PFPS.
