The Action of 1αhydroxy Vitamin D3 and Phosphate Supplements in Hypophosphataemic Osteomalacia
Vitamin D resistant hypophosphataemic osteomalacia (VDRHPO) occurs as an inherited disorder or more unusually in association with certain connective tissue tumours1. The primary defect is considered to be a failure of phosphate transport with decreased tubular phosphate reabsorption and hypophosphataemia resulting in osteomalacia and myopathy2.
