    2. 2. Background Rickets is a disease of growing bone that is unique to children and adolescents. It is caused by a failure of osteoid to calcify in a growing person. Failure of osteoid to calcify in adults is called Osteomalacia.3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 2 Khorfakkan Hospital
    3. 3. Vitamin D deficiency rickets occurs when the metabolites of vitamin D are deficient. Less commonly, a dietary deficiency of calcium or phosphorus may also produce rickets3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 3 Khorfakkan Hospital
    4. 4. Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) is formed in the skin from a derivative of cholesterol under the stimulus of ultraviolet- B light. Natural nutritional sources of vitamin D are limited primarily to fatty, ocean-going fish.3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 4 Khorfakkan Hospital
    5. 5. Source of vitamin D1. Ultraviolet light2. Cod liver oil3. Ergosterol (vitamin D-2)Dairy milk is fortified with vitamin D(400 IU/L)Human milk contains littlevitamin D(less than 20-40 IU/L)3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 5 Khorfakkan Hospital
    6. 6. Pathophysiology3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 6 Khorfakkan Hospital
    7. 7. Cholecalciferol (i.e., vitamin D-3) is formed in the skin from 5-dihydrotachysterol.3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 7 Khorfakkan Hospital
    8. 8. This steroid undergoes hydroxylation in 2 steps . The first hydroxylation Occurs at position 25 in the liver, producing calcidiol (25-hydroxycholecalciferol)3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 8 Khorfakkan Hospital
    9. 9. The second hydroxylation Occurs in the kidney at the 1 position,where it undergoes hydroxylation tothe active metabolite calcitriol(1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol )3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 9 Khorfakkan Hospital
    10. 10. CalcitriolActs at 3 known sites to tightly regulatecalcium metabolism:(1) it promotes absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the intestine(2) it increases reabsorption of phosphate in the kidney(3) it acts on bone to releasecalcium and phosphate.3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 10 Khorfakkan Hospital

Epidemiology The frequency increasing internationally 1.Children to wear sunscreen while outdoors 2.Children spend more time indoors watching television or playing electronic games, instead of playing outdoors •Lowdon J.

    18. 18. Approach Considerations Serum measurements in the workup for rickets may include the following: 1.Calcium.2.Phosphorus.3.Alkaline phosphatase4.Parathyroidhormone 5.25-hydroxy vitamin D 6.1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D Radiography is indicated in patients with rickets3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 18 Khorfakkan Hospital
    19. 19. Serum Chemistry Calcium (ionized fraction) is low Calcidiol (25-hydroxy vitamin D) is low Parathyroid hormone is elevated Phosphorus level is invariably low for age Alkaline phosphatase levels are uniformly elevated .3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 19 Khorfakkan Hospital

    24. 24. Treatment & Management Treatment for rickets may be administered gradually over several months or in a single-day dose of 15,000 mcg (600,000 U) of vitamin D3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 24 Khorfakkan Hospital
    25. 25. If the gradual method is chosen, 125-250 mcg(5000-10,000 U) is given daily for 2-3 monthsuntil:1. Healing is well established2. Alkaline phosphatase concentration is approaching the reference range3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 25 Khorfakkan Hospital
    26. 26. If the vitamin D dose is administered in a single day, it is usually divided into 4 or 6 oral doses. An intramuscular injection is also available In nutritional rickets: 1.Phosphorus level rises in 96 hrs 2. Radiographic healing is visible in 6-7 days3/8/2012 Rickets Prof. Dr.Saad S Al ani 26 Khorfakkan Hospital
