Abstract

A condition of osteopenia in some cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) patients led us to investigate bone metabolism in 8 patients belonging to 5 families. Serum calcium, phosphate and vitamin D metabolites were in the normal range; a reduction in total body density and impairment of intestinal radiocalcium absorption were found in the majority of our patients.
