  • Active rickets

  • Rickets
  • Vitamin d-dependent rickets
Clinical Information
  • A condition caused by deficiency of vitamin d, especially in infancy and childhood, with disturbance of normal ossification.
  • A condition caused by vitamin d deficiency
  • Bone softening and weakening usually caused by deficiency or impaired metabolism of vitamin d. Deficiency of calcium, magnesium, or phosphorus may also cause rickets. It predominantly affects children who suffer from severe malnutrition. It manifests with bone pain, fractures, muscle weakness, and skeletal deformities.
  • Disorder of calcium and phosphorus metabolism affecting bony structures, due to a variety of defects in vitamin d, calcium, and phosphorous homeostasis, including dietary deficiencies or malabsorption.
  • Rickets causes soft, weak bones in children. It usually occurs when they do not get enough vitamin d, which helps growing bones absorb important nutrients. Vitamin d comes from sunlight and food. Your skin produces vitamin d in response to the sun's rays. Some foods also contain vitamin d, including fortified dairy products and cereals, and some kinds of fish. Your child might not get enough vitamin d if he or she
    • has dark skin
    • spends too little time outside
    • has on sunscreen all the time when out of doors
    • doesn't eat foods containing vitamin d because of lactose intolerance or a strict vegetarian diet
    • is breastfed without receiving vitamin d supplements
    • can't make or use vitamin d because of a medical disorder such as celiac disease
    in addition to dietary rickets, children can get an inherited form of the disease.
