The metabolism of vitamin D has been studied in human and rat fetuses together with the influence of vitamin D and its derivatives on fetal growth, embryonic cartilage and fetal length. Although the results are not complete, it could be concluded that vitamin D metabolism in the fetus is not dependent on the mother nor the fetoplacental unit but principally on the fetus itself as demonstrated in the rat and humans.
