The symptoms most commonly seen in rickets and osteomalacia are the direct result of how the condition affects bone development. Children with rickets can have bowing of the legs which worsens over time, swollen wrists, and frontal bossing (an unusually prominent forehead). They also can have poor growth. Osteomalacia causes bone pain and can increase the risk of fracture.
