Five cases of severe myopathy associated with vitamin D deficiency are described. [...] Key Method Two were elderly, 1 was a 37-year-old African American with type 1 diabetes mellitus, 1 was being treated for carcinoid syndrome, and 1 was severely malnourished due to poor oral intake. In each, weakness had previously been attributed to other causes, including old age, concomitant diabetic neuropathy, or general debility.Expand
Treatment of Malabsorption Vitamin D Deficiency Myopathy with Intramuscular Vitamin D
TLDR
A nearly 5 year-old boy presented with proximal muscle weakness, reduced muscle bulk, a positive Gower sign and Trendelenburg gait, suggesting that malabsorption secondary to chronic liver disease was the cause of his rickets. Expand
Adolescent Osteomalacia Mimicking Neuromuscular Disorders.
TLDR
Osteomalacia, as a cause of myopathy, is underdiagnosed, and indicates the importance of considering osteomalacia in the assessment of patients presenting withMyopathy, as dramatic recovery after treatment can occur. Expand
Osteomalacia as a result of vitamin D deficiency.
TLDR
Treatment of osteomalacia is based on aggressive vitamin D repletion in most cases with follow-up biopsies if patients are started on antiresorptive or anabolic agents. Expand
Osteomalacia as a result of vitamin D deficiency.
TLDR
Treatment of osteomalacia is based on aggressive vitamin D repletion in most cases with follow-up biopsies if patients are started on antiresorptive or anabolic agents. Expand
Vitamin D deficiency and fatigue: an unusual presentation
TLDR
Clinicians should consider obtaining vitamin D levels in patients with unexplained fatigue, nonspecific musculoskeletal pain, and risk factors for vitamin D deficiency, including effects of vitamin D on components of inflammatory cascades. Expand
Hypophosphatemia is responsible for skeletal muscle weakness of vitamin D deficiency.
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that muscle weakness noted in rachitic patients is the result of the hypophosphatemia of vitamin D deficiency. Expand
Vitamin D deficiency and aging: implications for general health and osteoporosis
TLDR
In order to diagnose hypovitaminosis D, the assessment of serum levels of 25-hydroxy vitamin D is mandatory and screening based on other markers like alkaline phosphatase and parathyroid hormone (PTH) will be incomplete. Expand
CHAPTER 22 – Clinical Presentation of Primary Hyperparathyroidism: India, Brazil, and China
TLDR
It is reasonable to infer that more severe bone disease—such as osteitis fibrosa cystica, brown tumors, and pathologic fractures are likely only when excess parathyroid hormone secretion is accompanied by profound and prolonged vitamin D and calcium malnutrition. Expand
URINARY INCONTINENCE RESOLVED AFTER ADEQUATE VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTATION: A REPORT OF TWO CASES
  • J. Gau
  • Medicine
  • Journal of the American Geriatrics Society
  • 2010
TLDR
Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain did not show abnormalities, but electroencephalography demonstrated widespread abnormal slow cortical activity, which confirmed underlying encephalitis, and paranoid psychosis was concluded. Expand
Stepwise Approach to Myopathy in Systemic Disease
TLDR
In dealing with myopathies associated with systemic illnesses, the focus will be on the acquired causes, and a stepwise approach is utilized. Expand

Low 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, secondary hyperparathyroidism, and normal osteocalcin in elderly subjects.
TLDR
No compensatory increase in 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25-(OH)2D] and no increase in osteocalcin in response to hypersecretion of PTH in the elderly suggest these 2 defects may contribute to the bone disease of the elderly. Expand
Hypovitaminosis D in medical inpatients.
TLDR
Hypovitaminosis D is common in general medical inpatients, including those with vitamin D intakes exceeding the recommended daily allowance and those without apparent risk factors for vitamin D deficiency. Expand
Vitamin D deficiency and low osteocalcin concentrations in anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
The calcium, vitamin D, and osteocalcin concentrations were investigated in 17 patients with anorexia nervosa and it is likely that diminished osteoblastic activity, which may contribute to their osteopenia, is reflected. Expand
Persistence of parathyroid hypersecretion after vitamin D treatment in Asian vegetarians.
TLDR
Primary hyperparathyroidism is commonly associated with vegetarianism, and may play an important role in maintaining calcium concentrations within the normal range, and raises the question of the need for vitamin D supplementation in vegetarians with low dietary intake of vitamin D. Expand
Osteoporosis in women with anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
It is concluded that women with anorexia nervosa have a reduced bone mass due to osteoporosis, but that a high level of physical activity may protect their skeletons. Expand
Carcinoid myopathy. Serotonin-induced muscle weakness in man?
A myopathy, which improved with cyproheptadine hydrochloride therapy, developed in a patient with carcinoid syndrome of ten years' duration. Biopsy examination revealed advanced atrophy of type IIExpand

TLDR
The environmental and dietary factors which have produced this vitamin D deficiency are discussed in the light of a preliminary inquiry into the dietary habits and social conditions of the families involved. Expand
Effect of chapattis and ultraviolet irradiation on nutritional rickets in an Indian immigrant.
TLDR
A 14-year-old dark-skinned Asian boy with severe rickets in a phase of early healing was studied while on his normal vegetarian and high-chapatti diet, and ultraviolet irradiation of his skin led to healing of all signs of rickets. Expand
MUSCLE WEAKNESS IN OSTEOMALACIA
TLDR
The muscle weakness that frequently accompanies osteomalacia and rickets may arise from a variety of causes, and identification of the metabolic disorder is important, since effective treatment is often possible. Expand
Vitamin D status of the elderly in relation to age and exposure to sunlight.
TLDR
Regression analysis showed that 25-OHD concentrations fell with advancing age in both men and women and in summer and winter and approached the same value at about the age of 95, which has implications in the occurrence of osteomalacia among the elderly and the increasing incidence with age of fractures of the femoral neck.
