Abstract

We present four infants with seizures, and one without seizures, in whom the diagnosis of rickets was first suggested because of a demineralized skull. A review of the skull films in all of our patients with rickets showed that 20 of 25 (80%) showed demineralization. Demineralization of the skull is a common and important feature of rickets. Furthermore, as demonstrated by our cases, it may be the first clue to the presence of rickets in certain infants.
