Abstract

 Background: Vitamin D has an active role in the immune system. This study is aimed to evaluate serum levels of 25-hydroxy vitamin D in children with BURNS.Methods: In this analytical cross-sectional study which was done in children ward of burn injury hospitals in 2012-14, 118 patients were studied. A checklist consisting of age, sex, the degree BURNS, and entire surface of burn, serum level of 25-OH-VIT D, total protein, albumin, phosphorus, calcium, ionized and total calcium and PTH was measured. Data were entered into SPSS v.16 and analyzed.Results: Hundred and eighteen patients (68 (57.6%) male and 50 (42.4%) female) with mean age of 4.04 (SD=3.04) years old were studied. Mean level of 25-OH-VIT D was 14.58 (SD=6.94) ng/ml. Ninety five (81.3%) had 25-OH-VIT D lower than 20 ng/ml and 19 (16.1%) had 25-OH-VitD between 21-30 ng/ml. We found significant correlation between 25-OH-VIT D and total protein, albumin, Ca and significant negative correlation between 25-OH-VIT D and body surface area (p=0.001).Conclusion: Level of 25-OH-VitD in children after severe BURNS is low and these patients need to use vitamin D supplement. Level of 25-OH-VitD was not sufficient in 96.6%, while 81.3% had deficiency and 16.1% had insufficiency.
