View Alla Gordina, MD, FAAP What will my child need if his/her pre-adoptive medical report has a diagnosis of "rickets"? 12/19/2005 As many other diagnoses found in medical documents of children adopted from the former Soviet Union, rickets is both extremey common and extremely over-diagnosed.
View George Rogu M.D. Russian medical jargon or real medical problems? 2/21/2006 I am adopting a 3 ½ y/o child from Russia. From a parents point of view, this child looks pretty normal yet his medical record is full of scary diagnosis.

Perhaps I am making too much of this; but I have read several articles stressing the significance of this condition when it exceeds 2 Standard Deviations (3rd percentile).
