Introduction: Conventional treatment of X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets (XLH) involves administration of oral phosphate and vitamin D analogues. An important treatment goal is to heal rickets which is assessed by normalisation of serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) levels and resolution of radiological signs of rickets.Objectives: To determine the usefulness of serum ALP in assessing disease severity on wrist and knee radiographs as determined by rickets...

Burosumab, a monoclonal antibody targeting fibroblast growth factor 23, is now available for clinical use in children with X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH). We aimed to explore the effects of burosumab in children with XLH in a clinical setting, considering: a) Biochemistry b) Growth c) Lower limb deformity (LLD) d) Radiology e) Motor function<p class="abstext"...

Background: Congenital tibial pseudarthrosis (CTP) presents with anterolateral bowing of the lower leg in infancy, which often progresses to fracture and non-union (pseudarthrosis). CTP occurs in 2–3% of children with NF1. The distal end of the fibula and other long bones can also be affected.Objective: We describe three children in whom NF1 related congenital tibial or fibular pseudarthrosis was initially misdiagnosed as NAI....
