A rare case of hypocalcemia: was it better when it got worse?

Gallo Francesco , Lezzi Marilea , Moramarco Fulvio

XY, 14 years old, was born at term, birth weight 4900 g, length 54 cm. No problems reported in the early years of life. Due to recurrent abdominal pain for several years associated with dyspepsia, at 13 years he performed blood tests, with evidence of hypocalcemia (6.1 mg/dl) and hyperphosphatemia (8.6 mg/dl). For this reason, he was admitted to our ward: the weight was Kg 67.1 (1.8 SDS), height 168 cm (1.5 SDS), pubertal stage 4, objective examination in the norm. The exams p...

Background: Congenital hypopituitarism is a rare cause of pituitary insufficiency (incidence: 12–42 new cases/million per year; prevalence: 300–455 cases/million). The aetiology remains largely unclear: the most frequently correlated genetic abnormalities are those involving transcription factors implicated in pituitary organogenesis. The phenotype and neuroradiological findings associated with the underlying genotype may be highly variable (from an isolated hypopitu...
