Hypophosphatemic rickets with hypercalciuria

Hypercalciuric rickets is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations of the SLC34A3 gene. It is characterized by disturbed bode development as a result of hypophosphatemia and hypercalciuria.


Hypercalciuria is a cardinal symptom in HHRH and typically accompanied by bone deformations.
