Posterior tibial tendon tendinopathy (PTT) is the main cause of acquired flatfoot in adults. These disease is more common in females, patients with comorbidities such as obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and rheumatologic diseases, and the peak incidence occurs in the sixth decade of life. Although some risk factors are related to the development of PTT, many patients develop PTT in their absence, suggesting an influence of intrinsic molecular factors associated with the disease process. Genes related to hormone metabolism, when acting in combination with behavioral and endogenous factors could be responsible for most cases of PTT. (AU)
