Pseudohypoparathyroidism-1b (PHP-1b) is a genetically and biochemically distinct disorder characterised by selective PTH resistance limited to the kidney and lack of Albright Hereditary Osteodystrophy (AHO).

However, as the renal tubules are immature at birth and the reference range for urine phosphate excretion is not well defined in young children, there is uncertainty about how early in life a biochemical diagnosis of phosphate wasting can be made. In addition, the benefit of early treatment of hypophosphataemic rickets is unclear.<p class="ab...
