The unreliability of standard X-ray pictures of the knee for the correct evaluation of axial deformities of the knee-joint on the frontal plane is discussed. The teleradiographic picture of the full-length lower limb gives the necessary indications for a reproducible and reliable evaluation of the knee deformities. An alternative method is presented in case the teleradiographic technique is not available.
