High incidence of rickets in children with wheezy bronchitis in a developing country



High incidence of rickets in children with wheezy bronchitis in a developing country



Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine 75(11): 884-887



The incidence of rickets in 100 Iraqi infants with wheezy bronchitis (24%) exceeded by 2.5 times that in age-matched controls (9%) and by 10 times when only infants with severe rickets were considered. The reason is not entirely clear, but could be related to the observation that the infants with wheezy bronchitis weighed more and therefore had grown faster than the control group. This itself could be related to the higher incidence of breast feeding in the infants with wheezy bronchitis.
