Albright hereditary osteodystrophy is characterized by subcutaneous calcification, obesity, short stature, brachydactyly and pseudohypoparathyroidism type IA. Hypothyroidism and hypogonadism may be present. The diagnosis is based on clinical characteristics associated with hypocalcemia and high levels of parathyroid hormone. The authors report a case in which the dermatological evaluation contributed to diagnosis.

Keywords : Calcification physiologic; Hypocalcemia; Pseudohypoparathyroidism.
