Abstract

A 36 year-old man and his 6 month-old daughter presented with multiple, slightly depressed, skin-colored, hard nodules and plaques on the abdomen, back, and both extremities. They also showed abnormal physical appearance, including short stature and neck, round face, and short digits, which suggested Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy (AHO). Histopathologically, various sized bony spicules were present in the dermis. The laboratory results showed normal serum calcium, phosphorus and parathyroid hormone levels. On the basis of clinical, laboratory and histologic findings, we diagnosed these cases as Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy with cutaneous ossification occurring in pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism.
