In a natural history study of patients ≤5 years of age with hypophosphatasia (HPP)1,a:
52% (16/31) of patients had nephrocalcinosis
Patients with hypophosphatasia (HPP) can suffer from profound renal manifestations.2-6
In hypophosphatasia, defective bone mineralization and impaired regulation of phosphate and calcium can result in renal manifestations.2-5
Patients with hypophosphatasia may experience2-4
Elevation of calcium can result in2,4,5
Renal damage, which may be severe
Systemic manifestations of hypophosphatasia can include severe renal damage and renal failure.2,4,5
aData from a noninterventional, retrospective chart review study designed to understand the natural history of 48 patients with severe perinatal- and infantile-onset hypophosphatasia ≤5 years of age.1
