Low bone mass in juvenile onset sclerosis systemic (JoSSc): the possible role for 25-hydroxyvitamin D (250HD) insufficiency. We have identified a remarkable high prevalence of 25OHD insufficiency in JoSSc. Its correlation with hip bone mineral apparent density (BMAD) suggests a causal effect and reinforces the need to incorporate this hormone evaluation in this disease management.
