Abstract

Hypophosphatemic Vitamin D resistant rickets is a rare disease, which is characterized by lack response to vitamin D at the level of receptors leading to rickets. It is also associated with disturbed metabolism and activity of vitamin D and/or disturbed phosphate metabolism. We present a case of a 19 year old male presented with symptoms and signs of Vitamin D deficiency and diagnosed as Vitamin D resistant rickets.

Keywords: Vitamin D, Phosphate, Rickets.
