On evaluation, she was found to have type 1 Renal tubular acidosis, pseudofractures of ribs and Hypovitaminosis D.

This case report highlights interesting coexistence of two disorders, one very common (Hypovitaminosis D) and one rare (Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis dRTA), in same patient, producing same pathology (osteomalacia)
