Clinical , Biochemical and Radiological manifestations of vitamin D deficiency in newborns

Newborns with severe VDD presented with hypocalcemia and increased alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and PTH compared to older infants with VDD. Serum calcium levels were correlated significantly with 25OH vitamin D and Mg concentrations. Radiological manifestations included metaphyseal band of lucency (osteopenia) within distal radius, femur, and/or tibia with mild cupping.

Raquitismo Neonatal por Déficit de Vitamina D

En neonatos, el déficit de vitamina D grave se presenta con hipocalcemia y mayor elevación de la fosfatasa alcalina y la hormona paratiroidea respecto de los niños mayores con el mismo trastorno. Los niveles de calcemia se correlacionaron en forma significativa con las concentraciones de 25-hidroxivitamina D y magnesio. Las manifestaciones radiológicas incluyeron bandas radiolúcidas metafisarias de osteopenia con ensanchamiento moderado de epífisis "en copa" a nivel del extremo distal del radio, el fémur, la tibia o en más de un sitio.
