  title={Experience with refractory vitamin D resistant rickets and non-17 alkyl testosterone derivative anabolic agent},
  author={Aamir Jalal Al-Mosawi},
Background: Renal tubular disorders may be associated vitamin D-resistant rickets, dwarfism and deformities. Treatment is nonspecific and directed towards correcting acidosis, hypokalemia, hypophosphatemia and vitamin D resistance. The response to therapy depends on the severity of the disorder, and sometimes bone changes persist with the development of skeletal deformities. Patients & methods: From June 2000 to 2001, four patients with renal tubular disorder associated with vitamin D-resistant…

Cerebral palsy is a heterogeneous condition and the emergence of a single therapeutic agent that offers a comprehensive effect to improve its manifestations is very unlikely is the near future, therefore, the use of evidence-based multi-factorial therapies is advisable.

The aim of this book is to describe the pattern of cerebral palsy in a sample of Iraqi children observed by a single pediatrician in a tertiary pediatric referral center to serve medical educators and medical practitioners as an atlas of cerebral pawsy as it is rich in photographs.



Genetic and long-term data on a patient with permanent isolated proximal renal tubular acidosis

It is demonstrated that early administration of alkali therapy and sustained correction of acidosis, even if inadequate to correct the metabolic Acidosis, can markedly improves growth in permanent isolated proximal renal tubular acidosis.

Acid and mineral balances and bone in familial proximal renal tubular acidosis.

It is speculated, without direct supporting evidence, that bone stores of HCO3-/CO3= are reduced, as has been observed in patients with the metabolic Acidosis of chronic renal failure and in experimental metabolic acidosis in animals.
