Neurological involvement in X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets.

Abstract

X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets is a familial form of Vitamin D resistant rickets in which gross bony and ligamentous changes may occur. Two patients showing severe spinal disease with evidence of spinal cord compression requiring neurosurgical intervention are reported. The management of such lesions may be problematic as cord compression may be found at several levels at presentation, and further difficulties develop after neurosurgical treatment.
