Introduction: Secondary hyperparathyroidism is a serious and expected complication in almost every patient with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nevertheless brown tumors formed by osteoclasts are rarely found in this subtype of patients and are extremely rare in children with CKD.

Background: Hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural deafness, and renal disease (HDR syndrome, Barakat syndrome) is a rare condition, caused by a mutation on chromosome 10p which affects the GATA3 gene. GATA3 encodes a transcription factor important for the embryonic development of the parathyroid gland, the auditory stem, and the kidneys. Its expression has also been found in the thymus and the central nervous system. A wide range of renal involvement has been rep...
