Hypocalcaemic fit in an adolescent boy with undiagnosed rickets

Rickets in early childhood has been well documented in the literature. We present the case of a teenage Somalian boy who had a generalised tonic-clonic fit (an unusual presentation of rickets in late childhood) and was diagnosed with vitamin D deficient rickets.
