Renal osteodystrohpy is the skeletal response to long-standing renal disease . The great majority of cases are acquired and are associated with chronic renal failure due to glomerulonephritis or pyelonephritis. This discussion is basically related to the group of patients with glomerular disease. With dialysis and renal transplantation, the lon-gevity of these patients is increased , and renal osteodystrophy is more frequently seen. The congenital form of this disease is associated with tubular dysfunction. Vitamin D-refractory rickets, Fanconi’s syndrome, and renal tubular acidosis are in this group . Patients with the congenital form may also develop chronic renal failure (CRF).
