Question of the Week

Q. The 30-month-old male child was brought with c/o protruding of the chest wall, on detailed examination no other anomalies were noted, and the child is 11 kg. Relatives noted the protrusion since birth and the child was kept on calcium supplements. Since 6 months relatives noted there is an increase in protrusion. I am not sure whether it is pectus carinatum so I want to know what should be the approach and management.
