INTRODUCTION: People with post-polio syndrome usually have some residual deformities. Genu recurvatum is very commonly seen in such cases which are a risk factor for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury due to the altered biomechanics. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report in literature presenting ACL reconstruction in a limb with genu recurvatum deformity treated with supracondylar osteotomy.
