The whole group of vitamin D-resistant rickets conditions have recently been re-examined in regard to treatment with the vitamin D hormone. There is no dubt that vitamin D-dependency rickets Type I, which is a disorder in the 25-0H-D-la-hydroxylase, can easily be treated with physiologic aounts of 1,25-(OH)2D3 providing strong evidence that this is a disorder in the 25-0H-D-la-hydroxylase (276,301).
