GOMES, Mônica Fernandes et al. Oral manifestations of Albright hereditary Osteodystrophy: a case report. Rev. Hosp. Clin. [online]. 2002, vol.57, n.4, pp. 161-166. ISSN 0041-8781. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0041-87812002000400006.
Albright hereditary osteodystrophy is a hereditary metabolic disorder of dominant autosomal etiology that is commonly characterized by short stature, round face, small metacarpus and metatarsus, mental retardation, osteoporosis, subcutaneous calcification, variable hypocalcemia, and hyperphosphatemia. In this study, we report a clinical case of a 17-year-old woman with Albright hereditary osteodystrophy, and we discuss her clinical, radiographic, and laboratory test characteristics together with the oral manifestations, and we correlate them with the characteristics found in the literature. We also discuss the odontological management of treatment of related periodontal disease and planning for corrections of related malocclusions.
