In this review article, the definition and pathogenesis of foot ankle deformities in cerebral palsy patients and their treatment strategies are summarised. Although the first line of treatment after diagnosis of cerebral palsy is always physical therapy and bracing, in most of the children, antispasticity medication and surgical treatment are also necessary. Treatment protocol should be individualized and multifactorial. Deformities may progress in time or structural changes occur; therefore, an exact and careful surgical decision making process is necessary.
