  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    […] hyperparathyroidism Secondary hyperparathyroidism Tertiary hyperparathyroidism Hypoparathyroidism Pseudohypoparathyroidism Osteoporosis Osteitis deformans (Paget's disease of bone) Rickets[] Up to 80% of patients are reported to have a scoliosis exceeding 10 , and 15–20% have clinically significant scoliosis ( 43 ).[] […] experienced progression of scoliosis to the severe stage ( 20 ).[]

  • Rickets

    Rickets causes the bones of the affected children to become weak and soft.[] Bowleg deformity (genu varum) Bowing of long bones in legs Wrist enlargement Ankle enlargement Rib beading (rachitic rosary) Harrison's sulcus and pot belly Chest deformity Scoliosis[] .  Bowing deformities, fractures, decreased bony length, scoliosis, and pseudo- fractures are other notable findings.[]

  • Familial Hypophosphatemia

    […] history of vitamin D-resistant rickets and persistent hypophosphatemia.[] […] and weakness, which may result in fractures, weak joints In adults, the signs and symptoms include: Short stature Spinal stenosis, abnormal curvature of the spine (termed scoliosis[] Spine shows scoliosis or lordosis and biconcave vertebral bodies. Pelvis shows triradiate appearance due to the inward migration of the sacrum and acetabula. 2.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    I, or pseudo-vitamin D-deficiency rickets).[] He had a bifid uvula, bilaterally duplicated thumbs and scoliosis. Additionally, he had hypertelorism, a wide forehead and flattening of mid-face.[] The inheritance of one copy (from one parent) of the mutated gene is sufficient to produce MS (inheritance of two copies, one from each parent, causes vitamin D-dependent rickets[]

  • Kyphosis

    In rickets, associated with kyphosis, there is a form of exaggerated rotated pelvis (pubis high).[] To determine the prevalence of scoliosis and kyphosis in patients with achondroplasia.[] It may be caused by rickets or tuberculosis of the spine.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    A diagnosis of vitamin D-resistant rickets was considered initially but a thorough clinical examination and skeletal survey was suggestive of mucopolysaccharidosis.[] The patient was a 17-year-old girl with growth retardation, hearing loss, and severe skeletal dysplasia(scoliosis and chicken breast), and was evaluated to have normal nervous[] Affected individuals usually present with unusual skeletal features including short trunk dwarfism, odontoid hypoplasia, pectus carinatum, kyphosis, gibbus, scoliosis, genu[]

  • Abetalipoproteinemia

    Examination revealed a pale child, dysmorphic face, and signs of rickets.[] Scoliosis (curvature of the spine). Progressive decreased vision. Retinitis Pigmentosa. Balance and coordination problems.[] […] smelling stools [3] Protruding abdomen Intellectual disability / developmental delay Developmental coordination disorder , evident by age ten Muscle weakness Slurred speech Scoliosis[]

  • Mucolipidosis

    The diagnosis of Mucolipidosis II is often missed, as it may present with rickets-like picture.[] Bone manifestations of ML II include hip dysplasia, scoliosis, rickets and osteogenesis imperfecta.[] The clinical symptoms include progressive joint stiffness, short stature, and scoliosis.[]

  • Osteitis Deformans

    Rickets could cause identical findings, but bowing of the legs is most apt to occur in childhood.[] PA and lateral spine view elucidated involvement of lumbar vertebra (radiolucent lesion) at L1, L2 with scoliosis at same region.[]

  • Prader-Willi Syndrome

    Prader helped conduct studies that led to the discovery of hereditary fructose intolerance, hypocalcemic pseudo-vitamin D deficiency as a genetic type of rickets, Prader-Willi[] The literature dealing with scoliosis surgery in PWS consists of only few case reports.[] Sixty-four patients had scoliosis, and 84 were non-scoliosis patients.[]
