PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To summarize the current knowledge on vitamin D with a special focus on critically ill patients. RECENT FINDINGS: Vitamin D deficiency is associated with adverse health outcomes including increased risk of cardiovascular disease, morbidity and mortality in the general population. In critically ill patients, the pleiotropic effects of vitamin D including its role in immune function are of great interest. SUMMARY: To date, it is not clear whether vitamin D deficiency is a surrogate marker for increased morbidity or whether treatment with sufficiently large doses of vitamin D may improve patient outcome in an intensive care setting.
