Scope note: Alteraciones causadas por la interrupción de la MINERALIZACIÓN ÓSEA que en adultos se manifiesta como OSTEOMALACIA y en los lactantes y niños causa deformidades características como consecuencia de trastornos en el proceso de FORMACIÓN DEL HUESO. El proceso de mineralización puede verse alterado por trastornos homeostáticos de la VITAMINA D, el FÓSFORO o el CALCIO derivados de deficiencias en la dieta y también como consecuencia de trastornos metabólicos u hormonales hereditarios o adquiridos.

Scope note: Disorders caused by interruption of BONE MINERALIZATION manifesting as OSTEOMALACIA in adults and characteristic deformities in infancy and childhood due to disturbances in normal BONE FORMATION. The mineralization process may be interrupted by disruption of VITAMIN D; PHOSPHORUS; or CALCIUM homeostasis, resulting from dietary deficiencies, or acquired, or inherited metabolic, or hormonal disturbances.
