Abstract

Rickets remains endemic in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) and has re-emerged in high-income countries. Poverty, ignorance and poor healthcare in LMIC still contribute to development of the disease and, if untreated, its progression to severe forms. A 6-year-old girl from a poor background presented with malnutrition, anaemia, rachitic rosary and severe deformities of the upper and lower limbs owing to vitamin D deficiency. Although she responded well to treatment initially, some of the deformities required surgical intervention. Unfortunately, she was lost to follow-up.
