Abstract: Hypocalcemia is an uncommon illness in children. In developed countries the incidence of rickets has decreased significantly, although last years this pathology is increasing at the expense of immigration. Its etiology is due to different factors such as low sun exposure, inadequate clothing and bad feeding and excessive contributions in phytates, exclusive breastfeeding and genetic factors. We report a case of a teenager 13 year old from Pakistan, who consulted for myoclonus, paresthesias, hand midwife and asymmetry walking. The laboratory emphasizes hypocalcemia deficit of 25 (OH) D and increased parathyroid hormone. Administration of calcium and vitamin D along with changes in his diet normalized clinical and laboratory parameters. Due to increased migration, the lack of sun exposure and inadequate supply this disease which was almost forgotten will appear another time.

En países desarrollados la incidencia de raquitismo ha disminuido de manera espectacular, aunque en los últimos años existe un resurgimiento dependiente prácticamente del fenómeno migratorio. Su etiología se debe a diferentes factores como son escasa exposición solar, inadecuada indumentaria y alimentación con pocos aportes lácteos y excesivos en fitatos, lactancia materna exclusiva y factores genéticos. Se presenta un caso clínico de un adolescente de 13 años de origen Pakistaní, q consultó por mioclonias, parestesias, mano en comadrona y asimetría en la marcha. En la analítica destaca hipocalcemia, déficit de 25(OH) D y aumento de paratohormona. La administración de calcio y vitamina D junto a la modificación de su dieta normalizaron los parámetros analíticos y la clínica. Debido al incremento de la migración, a la escasez de exposición solar e inadecuada alimentación esta enfermedad casi olvidada volverá a verse
