Abstract: Abstract Aim This population-based study assessed the incidence of rickets in infants up to age of one born in Sweden from 1997-2014. We also examined maternal and perinatal factors and co-morbidity. Methods We used Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare registers and data from Statistics Sweden. The outcome measure was an International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, code for rickets. Results There were 273 cases of rickets, with an incidence of 14.7 per 100,000 and a 10-fold incidence increase between 1997-2014. The majority (78.4%) were born preterm, half were small-for-gestational age (SGA) (birthweight
