En sjælden form for overvægt hos børn og unge

Sara Østergaard Christensen, Kirsten Holm, Hanne Buciek Hove


A four-year-old girl was referred to a paediatric department with low height, obesity and hypothyroidism. Her paraclinical tests were characteristic with elevated P-parathyroid hormone concentration, hypothyroidism, growth hormone deficiency, abnormal phenotype with brachydactyly, tooth problems and mental retardation, which led to a suspicion of Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy (AHO). The diagnosis was verified by molecular genetic testing. Less than 1% of children with obesity have an endocrine disorder, and AHO is one of them.
