Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A young infant presented with a febrile respiratory illness, irritability, and failure to thrive. Clinical evaluation identified that he had profound hypovitaminosis D with severe hypocalcemia and active pulmonary tuberculosis. We review the literature and discuss the current state of knowledge of the interrelationship between Mycobacterium infection and vitamin D status, and its implication to pediatricians.
