Hyperostosis with hyperphosphatemia and tumoral calcinosis: a case report.


Journal Article

The combination of hyperostosis and hyperphosphatemia is very rare. In this case report, we present a boy with a combination of diffuse hyperostosis and hyperphosphatemia. We evaluated most possible known causes of hyperphosphatemia and hyperostosis. He had normal renal function and serum parathormone level. Concerning some few similar cases, most of them from Middle Eastern countries, we present this combination (diffuse hyperostosis and hyperphosphatemia) as a new syndrome to be discussed in pediatric textbooks.
