Box plot of the admission diagnoses and vitamin D levels amongst the malnourished children. The median (IQR) serum vitamin D level was 36.5 (IQR 29, 42) ng/mL among children admitted with pneumonia. The mean (SD) was 36.3 ± 11.8 ng/mL. There were three outlier; one child admitted with pneumonia with elevated vitamin D levels of >60 ng/mL, one child admitted with meningitis with levels >40 ng/mL and one with serum vitamin D levels <20 ng/mL
