OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy and safety of 300,000 and 600,000 IU vitamin-D single-oral dose for the treatment of vitamin-D deficiency (VDD) in young children (3 mo - 3 y). METHODS: This double-blind randomized control trial (Clinical Trail Registration-CTRI/2012/05/002621) was conducted in the Pediatric out-patient department (OPD) at a tertiary-care referral hospital. Children (3 mo - 3 y) with clinical/radiological features suggestive of VDD were screened; those found to be having 25(OH)D below 15 ng/ml and meeting inclusion and exclusion criteria's were enrolled after taking informed consent...

OBJECTIVES: Vitamin D deficiency is common in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The aim of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of stoss therapy on vitamin D levels during a period of 6 months in children with IBD and vitamin D deficiency (<50 nmol/L). METHODS: A retrospective chart review was undertaken, focusing upon children managed in the IBD clinic at Sydney Children's Hospital between 2006 and 2010. Those with a 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) level <50 nmol/L and those who received stoss therapy were included in this study...

OBJECTIVES: Oral high-dose repletion vitamin D therapy, also known as stoss therapy, can be effective in the treatment of nutritional vitamin D deficiency rickets in infants and young children without liver disease and in patients with cystic fibrosis. There is no literature about this approach in infants with new-onset cholestasis. METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of infants with cholestasis from March 2010 to March 2012 at a pediatric tertiary care center...

AIM: The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency has risen in countries with a high ultraviolet index and sunny environment such as Australia. There is lack of information on vitamin D status and best possible therapy in Australian Aboriginal children. We aim to (i) describe the vitamin D status in an opportunistic sample of Aboriginal children in Western Australia and (ii) compare the efficacy of oral daily vitamin D with oral stoss vitamin D therapy in this sample. METHOD: Participants were recruited from a metropolitan area (31' S) and a rural area (17' S)...

Vitamin D deficiency has emerged as a significant public health problem throughout the world. Even in the Indian context,it has been reported to be present in majority of children in spite of wide availability of sunlight. Recent guidelines have defined vitamin D status as severe deficiency, deficiency, sufficiency and risk for toxicity as 25(OH)D levels <5, <15, >20 and >50ng/mL, respectively.The manifestations of deficiency may vary from hypocalcemic seizures, tetany in infancy and adolescence to florid rickets in toddlers...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the safety and efficacy of stoss therapy on vitamin D levels over a 12 month period in children with cystic fibrosis and vitamin D deficiency (<75 nmol/L). STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart review of 142 paediatric CF patients from 2007 till 2011. RESULTS: Thirty eight children received stoss therapy and 37 children with vitamin D deficiency were not treated and served as a control group. The stoss treated group had a significant and sustained increase in 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels measured at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months post treatment compared to controls (94...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin D deficiency can be treated with daily vitamin D supplementation for several weeks or single-day high-dose vitamin D therapy (stoss therapy). However, there are few studies comparing efficiency and side effects of these two treatment models. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to compare the efficiency and side effects of low-dose stoss therapy and lower-dose daily vitamin D supplementation in children with vitamin D deficiency. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our subjects were 42 patients with ages between 5 months and 3 years with diagnosed vitamin D deficiency...

Vitamin D is necessary for normal bone growth. Deficiency of vitamin D can lead to rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. It is difficult to reach the recommended daily dose of vitamin D in children without cod liver oil or other vitamin D supplementation. Several cases of rickets have been diagnosed in Iceland the past few years. Studies suggest a worldwide increase in the prevalence of the disorder. We report on a girl who was diagnosed with rickets at the age of 27 months. She received inadequate amounts of vitamin D supplementation in the form of AD drops and cod liver oil...
