GUILLEN LOPEZ, Otto Barnaby. Deficiency of vitamin D as cause of severe hypocalcemia in an old woman. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.178-181. ISSN 1018-130X.

Vitamin D deficiency is a very high prevalence condition in older adults and may present as symptomatic hypocalcemia. I present a case of a 75-year-old woman with generalized convulsions due to hypocalcaemia with normal renal and parathyroid function in which vitamin D levels were deficient.

Keywords : Vitamin D deficiency; hypocalcemia; aged.
