In brief: Most cases in kids

Rickets is a softening of the bones caused most often by vitamin d deficiency, but calcium deficiency can also be a cause.
Most cases occur in children often in the setting of malnutrition. Lack of sunlight exposure has lead to an increase in incidence of rickets. The term for the adult form is osteomalacia.
