PMID:  3793895     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two cases of vitamin D deficiency rickets in cerebral palsied children are presented. The problem of diagnosis and possible etiological factors are discussed. This report highlights a problem that is often not recognized in South Africa, particularly because of the abundant sunshine and, therefore, the rarity of vitamin D deficiency in the normal child.
