Familial hypophosphatemic vitamin D-resistant rickets: review of the literature and report of case.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatric Dentistry, University of Illinois, Chicago.


Familial hypophosphatemia, commonly known as vitamin D-resistant rickets, is inherited in an x-linked dominant manner. This condition is characterized by impairment of renal tubular reabsorption of inorganic phosphate and is inherited as a sex-linked dominant trait. Early clinical signs, usually detected about two years of age, included lateral bowing of the lower extremities, scoliosis, and frontal bossing. Characteristic dental findings are often the first clinically noticeable signs of the disease. This case report describes the typical dental findings in a 10-year old Hispanic female.
