Two Case Reports of FGF23-Induced Hypophosphatemia in Childhood Biliary Atresia.

Abstract

Cholestatic liver disease has long been associated with childhood rickets, secondary to impaired absorption of fat-soluble vitamin D. Elevated serum levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), secondary to genetic defects or tumor-induced osteomalacia, causes hypophosphatemic rickets in childhood.
