Caption: Rickets surgery, 19th-century artwork. This surgery is taking place in an institute in Milan, Italy, dedicated to treating children with rickets. Rickets is a softening of the bones in children due to impaired metabolism or vitamin D deficiency. Surgery was usually on the bowed legs that resulted. Italy was one of the earliest countries in Europe to have institutions for those with rickets, with the most famous, the Pious Institute for rickets sufferers of Milan, opening in 1874. It developed from a school into a modern hospital. Artwork from the 17th volume (first period of 1896) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
