to diagnose CDH, a combination of clinical tests (Ortolani, Barlow, Galeazzi) and imaging studies (ultrasound for infants <6 months, X-ray for older infants) is crucial. Differentiating from other causes of delayed walking involves assessing for neuromuscular, orthopedic, genetic, and metabolic conditions through targeted physical exams and appropriate diagnostic tests.
