Abstract:  Hypovitaminosis D is highly prevalent in adult kidney-transplanted patients. The knowledge of vitamin D status in kidney-transplanted children and adolescents is sparse. The present study investigated the vitamin D status of a cohort of kidney-transplanted children and adolescents, and the association between vitamin D status and plasma concentrations of PTH, ionized calcium, and phosphate. The study included 35 patients with a functioning graft. Their mean age was 12.0 yr, and the mean graft age was 2.8 yr. Forty percent of the patients were vitamin D insufficient (P-25-hydroxyvitamin D 40-75 nm), and 14% were deficient (P-25-hydroxyvitamin D
