Abstract

Background: Hereditary vitamin D-resistant rickets (HVDRR) is caused by vitamin D receptor (VDR) defects. Patients with HVDRR do not respond to standard doses of calcitriol and oral calcium (Ca) treatment and need to be treated with intravenous Ca (IV-Ca) via a central route. However, central catheter-related complications can cause significant morbidity.
