Vitamin D deficiency and rickets in Lagos
Rickets as a disease is still commonly seen among children with angular knee deformities in Lagos. There has been a lot of controversy about the primary cause of the condition in terms of whether it is a problem of deficiency of calcium or a deficiency of vitamin D or both. A selection of control patients with angular deformities but no signs of rickets and clinically proven patients suffering from rickets as evidenced by radiological and clinical findings will have their serum vitamin D and calcium levels assayed with a view to determining the primary or more prevalent deficiency.The study is expected to span a period of six months to one year in order to get a representative sample.It is expected that outcomes of the research will help in resolving this controversy as far as our environment is concerned and help in determining a new and comprehensive approach both for the purpose of treatment and prevention of new cases.
