    The effect of vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 on intestinal calcium absorption in Nigerian children with rickets.
    Thacher TD, Obadofin MO, O'Brien KO, Abrams SA.
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2009 Sep;94(9):3314-21. Epub 2009 Jun 30.
    PMID: 19567516

    Conclusions: Despite similar increases in 25-hydroxyvitamin D and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D with vitamin D2 or vitamin D3, fractional calcium absorption did not increase, indicating that rickets in Nigerian children is not primarily due to vitamin D-deficient calcium malabsorption

    Clinical Responses to a Mega-dose of Vitamin D3 in Infants and Toddlers With Vitamin D Deficiency Rickets.
    Soliman AT, El-Dabbagh M, Adel A, Ali MA, Aziz Bedair EM, Elalaily RK.
    J Trop Pediatr. 2009 Jun 8. [Epub ahead of print]
    PMID: 19506025
    doi:10.1093/tropej/fmp040

    Conclusion: An IM injection of a mega dose of cholecalciferol is a safe and effective therapy for treatment of VDD rickets in infants and toddlers with normalization of all the biochemical parameters and healing of radiological manifestations. Measurement of serum 25(OH)D level is highly recommended in all short children with a clear need for a general vitamin D supplementation for all infants and young children in Qatar.

    Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for maintaining normal calcium metabolism (1). Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) can be synthesized by humans in the skin upon exposure to ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation from sunlight, or it can be obtained from the diet. Plants synthesize ergosterol, which is converted to vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) by ultraviolet light. Vitamin D2 is less active in birds than vitamin D3 and may also be less active in humans (2). When exposure to UVB radiation is insufficient for the synthesis of adequate amounts of vitamin D3 in the skin, adequate intake of vitamin D from the diet is essential for health.
