Rickets Precipitated by Anticonvulsant Drugs: In a Child Receiving Prophylactic Vitamin D

Rickets Precipitated by Anticonvulsant Drugs: In a Child Receiving Prophylactic Vitamin D Abstract A 14-year-old girl with a vitamin D-poor diet and receiving phenobarbital for epilepsy developed florid rickets. After being cured of this, and while on a maintenance dose of vitamin D, the addition of diphenylhydantoin sodium was accompanied by a recurrence of the rickets, which was corrected by raising the dosage of vitamin D from 600 to 1,200 international units per day.

After being cured of this, and while on a maintenance dose of vitamin D, the addition of diphenylhydantoin sodium was accompanied by a recurrence of the rickets, which was corrected by raising the dosage of vitamin D from 600 to 1,200 international units per day.
