Hereditary hypophosphatemic rickets with hypercalciuria (HHRH) is a rare disorder of autosomal recessive inheritance that was first described in a large consanguineous Bedouin kindred. HHRH is characterized by the presence of hypophosphatemia secondary to renal phosphate wasting, radiographic and/or histological evidence of rickets, limb deformities, muscle(More)
We studied a new hereditary syndrome of hypophosphatemic rickets and hypercalciuria in six affected members of one kindred. In all patients, the manifestations of disease began in early childhood. The characteristic features are rickets, short stature, increased renal phosphate clearance (the ratio between the maximal tubular reabsorption rate for(More)
As the Walton-Bijvoet nomogram for estimating renal phosphate (P) threshold (TmP/GFR) is not applicable to children of all ages, we sought an alternative method for measuring renal handling of P. Recognizing that the nomogram represents an indirect correlation between TmP/GFR and TP/GFR under fasting conditions, we examined this directly in 26 children. An(More)
Four cases of BARDET-Biedl syndrome (BBS) are described which all suffer from renal abnormalities. Polyuria or polydipsia with impairment of renal concentration capacity were the earliest signs of renal dysfunction. Renal insufficiency developed in 3 cases and hypertension in two. Urographic abnormalities were demonstrated in all patients. The most(More)
Among 59 closely related members of one Bedouin tribe, we identified 9 who had the characteristic features of hereditary hypophosphatemic rickets with hypercalciuria (HHRH). We found "idiopathic" hypercalciuria in 21 of the 50 asymptomatic members. The biochemical abnormalities observed in these 21 subjects were qualitatively similar to those in the 9 with(More)
We describe two siblings from a consanguineous family with autosomal recessive Fanconi's syndrome and hypophosphatemic rickets. Genetic analysis revealed a homozygous in-frame duplication of 21 bp in SLC34A1, which encodes the renal sodium-inorganic phosphate cotransporter NaPi-IIa, as the causative mutation. Functional studies in Xenopus laevis oocytes and(More)
The effects of different treatment regimens and the influence of parental height on the statural growth of 40 patients with hereditary vitamin D-resistant hypophosphatemic rickets were investigated. Three treatment regimens, each with oral phosphate, were used: vitamin D (0.5 to 2 mg/day), calcidiol (50 to 200 micrograms/day), and 1 alpha-hydroxyvitamin D3(More)
A 5-year-old girl presented with lower limb deformities, delayed ambulation, short stature, facial dysmorphism and scoliosis. Radiologic examination showed severe anterior and external bowing of the femurs and anterior and internal bowing of the tibia and fibula, with posterior and medial cortical thickening. Square iliac wings, horizontal sacrum and(More)
Hereditary hypophosphatemic rickets with hypercalciuria (HHRH), a renal phosphate (Pi) wasting disease first described in an extended Bedouin kindred, is characterized by hypophosphatemia, elevated serum 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D levels, hypercalciuria, rickets, and osteomalacia. Correction of all abnormalities, except for renal Pi wasting, can be achieved by(More)
