As chest x-ray and vit-d is normal, do the below things. 1) expose your child to natural sunlight. 2) daily take him to walk in morning in sunlight. 3) make him play in ground. Do the above things daily till your boy reaches fourteen.
It is quite normally seen in children. Watch out if there is any problem with daily activities or has developed any symptoms.
