Pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP) represents a heterogeneous group of rare endocrine disorders caused by (epi) genetic abnormalities affecting the GNAS locus. It is mainly characterized by resistance to PTH and TSH, and by peculiar clinical features such as short stature, obesity, cognitive impairment, subcutaneous ossifications and brachydactyly. Delayed puberty, GHRH and calcitonin resistances have also been described. The healthcare-pathway recently proposed by the Italian Society of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetology (ISPED) has provided a standardized clinical approach to these conditions. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate its application in clinical practice, and to collect data for setting future specific studies.

Abstract

Pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP) represents a heterogeneous group of rare endocrine disorders caused by (epi) genetic abnormalities affecting the GNAS locus. It is mainly characterized by resistance to PTH and TSH, and by peculiar clinical features such as short stature, obesity, cognitive impairment, subcutaneous ossifications and brachydactyly. Delayed puberty, GHRH and calcitonin resistances have also been described. The healthcare-pathway recently proposed by the Italian Society of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetology (ISPED) has provided a standardized clinical approach to these conditions. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate its application in clinical practice, and to collect data for setting future specific studies.
