ABSTRACT
A 3-year-old female child was diagnosed as malignant autosomal recessive form of infantile osteopetrosis by presence of anemia, thrombocytopenia, hepatosplenomegaly, failure to thrive, visual and hearing loss, and the typical radiological images on plain radiograms. The patient had associated clinical and laboratory findings of rickets as a rare presentation. Treatment with calcitriol was initiated with a short-term calcium supplement.
