Objective: To understand the phenotypic and genotypic spectrum of genetic forms of rickets in 10 families. Methods: Detailed clinical, radiographic, and biochemical evaluation of 10 families with phenotypes suggestive of a genetic cause of rickets was performed. Molecular testing using exome sequencing aided in the diagnosis of six different forms of known genetic causes. Results: Eleven disease-causing variants including five previously reported variants (CYP27B1:c.1319_1325dup, p.(Phe443Profs*24), VDR:c.1171C>T, p.(Arg391Cys), PHEX: c.1586_1586+1del, PHEX: c.1482+5G>C, PHEX: c.58C>T, p.(Arg20*)) and six novel variants (CYP27B1:c.974C>T, p.(Thr325Met), CYP27B1: c.1376G>A, p.(Arg459His), CYP2R1: c.595C>T, p.(Arg199*), CYP2R1:c.1330G>C, p.(Gly444Arg),SLC34A3:c.1336-11_1336-1del, SLC2A2: c.589G>C, p.(Val197Leu)) in the genes known to cause monogenic rickets were identified. Conclusion: The authors hereby report a case series of individuals from India with a molecular diagnosis of rickets and provide the literature review which would help in enhancing the clinical and molecular profile for rapid and differential diagnosis of rickets.
