Conditions related to abnormalities of calcium and bone metabolism are large in number and are characterised by hypocalcaemia, hypercalcaemia, primary and secondary osteoporosis, rickets resulting from both vitamin D and phosphate metabolism disorders, and a series of miscellaneous conditions. Included in this chapter is a series of cases drawn from our clinics and from colleagues who have presented these clinical problems at the recent Advanced Courses in Paediatric Bone and Calcium Metabolism run by the British Paediatric and Adolescent Bone group. This series of cases is not fully comprehensive but is designed to cover the major aspects of bone- and calcium-related disorders.
