To understand nutritional rickets in Bangladesh better, 14 rachitic and 13 'unaffected' children were evaluated. Seventy per cent of children with active rickets had no evidence of either vitamin D deficiency or familial rickets. Rickets in Bangladesh is probably related to calcium deficiency. Abnormalities in 'unaffected' children suggest that subclinical calcium insufficiency is common.
