PMID:  3284908     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This is a report of a 6-year-old girl with the rare syndrome of hyperostosis with hyperphosphatemia. Only eight cases have been previously reported. The main features of this syndrome are repeated attacks of bone pain and swelling, the radiologic finding of periosteal reaction with cortical hyperostosis, and the laboratory finding of increased serum phosphorus level with normal serum calcium and parathyroid hormone levels. The purpose of this article is to review the clinical picture, laboratory and radiological findings, and the differential diagnosis.
