    Good evening sir. Well blount disease is closely related to rickets. it your son is just two years old, he most likely has the infantile for of it. One major predisposition to this at this early stage is overweight (childhood obesity). That said, the him be seen by paediatrics endocrinologist and orthopaedic surgeon. He may require both the medical and surgical care. Cheers

    You have taken the right step, some it is essentially an orthopaedic case but when in doubt it is advisable to co-manage with paediatrician. Worst case scenario, there may be need for surgical correction and your Doc will let you know when the need arises.
