Abstract

The prevalence of nephrocalcinosis in persons with pseudohypoparathyroidism has not been systematically examined. We conducted a retrospective study of renal imaging and biochemical results in 19 patients with pseudohypoparathyroidism with 49 imaging assessments. No cases of nephrocalcinosis were identified. Routine screening for nephrocalcinosis in pseudohypoparathyroidism may not be necessary.
