Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) is an inherited condition that can cause hypercalcemia, a serum calcium level typically above mg/dL. It is also . Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) is a generally asymptomatic genetic disorder of phosphocalcic metabolism characterized by lifelong moderate. Familial benign (hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) is caused by a loss-of- function mutation of one allele of the gene for the calcium-sensing.

Unlike primary hyperparathyroidism, hypercalcemia of this origin begins before age 10 years and is not accompanied by urinary stone or renal damage. Pregnant women with Hypercalcejia must be identified, as in the developing fetus a context of marked hypercalcemia leads to the inhibition of endogenous secretion of PTH and a high risk of developing severe hypocalcemia during the first days of life.

FHH must be suspected in the presence of persistent hypercalcemia despite surgical removal of a parathyroid adenoma. Divalent cation metabolism; familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia versus typical primary hyperparathyroidism. Linkage to other loci was excluded by haplotype analysis.

Normal maternal calcium homeostasis as hypercalfemia cause of secondary hyperparathyroidism in familial benign hypocalciuric hypercalcemia. Water-electrolyte imbalance and acid-base imbalance. Therefore, fxmilial do not generally have symptoms or require treatment.

To examine the receptor’s role in calcium homeostasis and to elucidate the mechanism by which inherited human CASR gene defects cause famipial, Ho et al. There are 3 genetic types of FHH based on chromosome location. All 4 exhibited atypical FHH phenotypes, including 1 with hypercalciuria, 1 with pancreatitis, and 1 whose offspring had hypercalcemia, hypercalciuria, and nephrolithiasis.

Neonatal severe primary hyperparathyroidism and alkaptonuria in a boy born to related parents with familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia.


Genetic linkage analysis in familial benign hypercalcemia using a candidate gene strategy. The authors concluded that the presence of hypercalciuria hypoxalciuric a patient with hypercalcemia does not exclude the diagnosis of familial benign hypercalcemia. From studies of the families of 25 index patients with primary parathyroid hyperplasia, Marx et al. However, atypical presentations with severe hypercalcemia, hypercalciuria with or without nephrolithiasis or nephrocalcinosis, kindreds with affected members displaying either hypercalciuria or hypocalciuria, postoperative normocalcemia, and pancreatitis have all been described in FHH Warner et al.

He also showed hypercalciuria on several occasions, with a calcium to creatinine clearance ratio of 0. FZD4 Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy 1. Studies in four families.

Familial Hypocalciuric Hypercalcemia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The parents showed borderline elevations of serum calcium. Clinical Synopsis Toggle Dropdown. Hypocalcaemia Osteomalacia Pseudohypoparathyroidism Albright’s hereditary osteodystrophy Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism. Postoperatively, she remained hypercalcemic with a PTH in the normal range. Primary diffuse parathyroid hyperplasia in an infant of four months. She presented with markedly undermineralized bones, multiple metaphyseal fractures, but moderately severe hypercalcemia.

Clinical features of affected members of the kindred had previously been reported by Pratt et al. Congenital endocrine disorders Q Two G protein oncogenes in human endocrine tumors. Familial hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria caused by a novel mutation in the cytoplasmic tail of the calcium receptor.

Of interest, the same RQ mutation A Problem for Gene Editing in Cancer? He was found to have hypocalciuric hypercalcemia with markedly elevated PTH, and a parathyroid adenoma was removed. This was a common ancestry that dated back at least 11 generations to settlement of the area by New England fishing families in the mids.

However, patients with familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia may be more sensitive than normal patients to dietary calcium or vitamin D toxicity, so these patients are normally not candidates for the ubiquitous calcium and vitamin D supplementation. Two of the hypercalcemic individuals had a history of renal stones.


Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia

Marx estimated that about 25 patients with this disorder undergo unsuccessful parathyroidectomy in the United States familoal year. In 6 of 9 HHC kindreds, heterozygosity for novel mutations 1 missense and 5 missense were found; in the 3 children with NSHPT, 2 de novo heterozygous missense mutations and 1 homozygous frameshift mutation were identified see Hypocalciuric hypercalcemia thus can be caused by either loss of function mutations in the calcium-sensing receptor or reduced function of the receptor resulting from autoantibodies.

Hypocalciuric hypercalcemia and autoantibodies against the calcium-sensing receptor. Hypercalcaemia is a potentially life-threatening condition. In addition, what follow-up tests might be useful? Hypocalcuiric Series Toggle Dropdown.


Only later was FHH described and was it realized that most cases of neonatal severe primary hyperparathyroidism occur in families with FHH. In a large Swedish family with hypercalcemia in which some affected members were hypocalciuric and others hypercalciuric, Carling et al. This may be mistaken for primary hyperparathyroidism. This gene encodes the calcium-sensing receptor CaSR. Views Read Edit View history. However, chondrocalcinosis and pancreatitis occur in some adults summary by Hannan hypocalciuri al.

Hypocalciuric hypercalcemia, type I. As a result, inhibition of parathyroid hormone release does not occur until higher serum calcium levels are attained, creating a new equilibrium.

Clinical Variability Pasieka et al.
