Rheumatology/Orthopedics Metatarsus adductus vs club foot (talipes equinovarus)

I have some problems regarding the treatment of these 2 malformations.

From what I know, mild metatarsus adductus can correct spontaneously while the club foot needs immediately casting. Is that correct?

Also, metatarsus adductus can be associated with acetabular dysplasia (check the hip), while the club foot can be associated with chromosomal anomalies.

Club foot is associated with chromosomal anomalies too? Thought it's only because of in utero position..
