Rickets, Hypophosphatemic, Autosomal Dominant

Affected individuals have hypophosphatemia and bone mineralization defects that result in rickets,osteomalacia with bone pain, lower extremity deformities, and muscle weakness. Dental abscesses are prevalent. The disorder is resistant to treatment with Vitamin D. ADHR is phenotypically similar to the more common X-linked form caused by mutation in the PHEX gene; however, it may demonstrate greater clinical variability with incomplete penetrance and delayed onset. In addition, as this is an autosomal dominant condition, male-to-male transmission occurs. Homozygous mutation in FGF23 has also been reported in hyperphosphatemic tumoral calcinosis (MIM 211900), a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the progressive deposition of calcified masses in cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues and elevated circulating levels of phosphate, also due to mutation in GALNT3.
