A bibliographic revision is done in order to know current knowledge about acquired ankle equinus after a long time staying on bed. After revising 32 articles we got little evidence but I found that there are several treatments however, these are not very efficacious. Surgery seems to be the best, but not always. Other treatments are used: physiotherapy, casting and orthopedic elements; although there are very few reports about prevention. On conclusion, it is needed to make more qualified studies with a major leadership by nursery because its potential benefits to patients who have this deformity.
