ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Vitamin D deficient rickets Deficiency of vitamin D metabolites causes decreased mineralization at growth plates UV light stimulates vitamin D formation in the skin Risk factors: dietary deficiency, living in the inner city (smog), darkly pigmented skin, decreased UV penetration

History: 3 yo AA female from the inner city, presents with irritability, apathy, height and weight below 3rd percentile

Findings: Cupping and fraying of the metaphyseal region at the distal end of the radius and ulna, due to lack of mineralization of cartilage at the growth plate

Ddx: Rickets (deficiency of calcium, phosphorous, or vitamin D) Congenital epiphyseal dysplasia Metaphyseal chondroplasia Mesenchymal bone or connective tissue tumor (nonossifying fibroma)

Exam: Scoliosis Bilateral anterior and lateral bowing of legs Delayed dentition

No MeSH data available.
