Results: The mean serum vitamin D in case group was 5.5±3.32 (range 3-23) and in control group was 8.05±4.81 (range 3-37). T-test showed a significant difference between two groups in terms of mean serum vitamin D (P<0.001). Conclusion: According to the findings in this group, vitamin D deficiency was found in both groups. Vitamin D deficiency in case group is so that has caused severely clear difference.
