Abnormalities of the calcium homeostasis are, with exception of the neonatal period, not often to diagnose in childhood. However, as the clinical features may not only be quite heterogeneous but also present with a very changing pattern, abnormalities of calcium homeostasis have to be considered in many differential diagnoses. Extracellular fluid calcium or plasma calcium is very carefully controlled by fluxes of calcium, which occur between the extracellular fluid and the skeleton, as well as between gut and the kidneys. Therefore, in this review, first, the factors physiologically regulating calcium homeostasis and bone formation are summarized; and then, the situations in which the plasma calcium level should be measured in daily clinical practices are discussed.
