[Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy I and cataract].Oftalmologia. 1995 Apr-Jun; 39(2):109-13.O
The 26-year-old female patient presented Albright I hereditary osteodystrophy and zonular cataract, chronic tetany, hypothyroidism. The affection started since she was 3 year old. In the same family there are other 7 persons with hereditary osteodystrophy, from which one of the patient's brothers has Albright II syndrome. It is proved that the pseudoparathyroidism and the pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism are two clinical manifestations of the same affection. The cataract from Albright syndrome is determined by disturbances of the phosphocalcium metabolism and must be distinguished by other endocrine and congenital forms of cataract. The deficiency can be explained by a disturbance of renal function in the reabsorption of phosphates.
