Narrative Description of Evidence
1. What is the nature of the threat to health for an individual carrying a deleterious allele?
Prevalence of the Genetic Condition
The population prevalence of autosomal dominant hypophosphatemic rickets (ADHR) is <1 in 1,000,000. Fewer than 100 cases have been described.
Clinical Features
(Signs / symptoms)
ADHR is caused by mutations in the FGF23 gene which leads to inappropriately high intact FGF23 levels. ADHR is characterized by isolated renal phosphate wasting, hypophosphatemia, rickets and inappropriately low or normal calcitriol levels. During childhood ADHR presents with short stature and rickets affecting primarily lower extremity deformities. During adulthood clinical findings include bone pain, fatigue, muscle weakness, and repeated fractures.

Natural History
(Important subgroups & survival / recovery)
Clinical manifestations depend on the age of onset (childhood, adolescence, adulthood) and on the severity of hypophosphatemia. In contrast to other inherited disorders of FGF23 excess (e.g., X-linked hypophosphatemia), ADHR shows incomplete penetrance and variable time of onset in the clinical phenotype. Two subgroups of patients appear to exist within ADHR. Patients may present in childhood with rickets and hypophosphatemia with some patients normalizing serum phosphate spontaneously as they age. A second group, primarily female, appears to grow normally and do not have hypophosphatemia but present in adolescence or adulthood with phosphatemic osteomalacia. These adults with delayed onset can also spontaneously normalize serum phosphate with a resolution of clinical symptoms. The timing and predisposing factors the waxing and waning of symptoms are largely unknown, recent evidence has indicated that changes in iron status may contribute to the changes in phenotype.

2. How effective are interventions for preventing harm?
Information on the effectiveness of the recommendations below was not provided unless otherwise stated.
Patient Management
Treatment aims at improving growth, bone or joint pain, enhancing mineralization of bones, and preventing skeletal deformities caused by rickets. It consists of daily oral administration of phosphate and calcitriol. Calcitriol is given to prevent secondary hyperparathyroidism that can be caused by phosphate administration. (Tier 4)
There have been case reports of individuals with ADHR presenting during childhood and adolescence/adulthood responding to treatment with phosphate and high doses of vitamin D analogs. (Tier 3)
However, there is some evidence that current treatment strategies may actually increase the production of FGF23. Thus, some authors have suggested the normalization of FGF23 concentration that occurs in some patients is likely due to an intrinsic physiologic alternation in the patient’s metabolism of FGF23, leading to resolution of ADHR features and observed delayed penetrance. (Tier 5)
Individuals should undergo frequent monitoring of height, calcium, alkaline phosphatase, parathyroid hormone, and phosphate serum concentrations, as well as urinary calcium and creatinine. (Tier 4)
Circumstances to Avoid
No circumstances-to-avoid recommendations have been provided for the Pediatric context.
3. What is the chance that this threat will materialize?
Mode of Inheritance
Autosomal Dominant
1 2
Prevalence of Genetic Variants
No information on prevalence of pathogenic variants causing ADHR was identified. Fewer than 100 cases have been described. (Tier 4)
(Include any high risk racial or ethnic subgroups)
ADHR exhibits incomplete penetrance. The onset of the features may be delayed and there is occasional resolution of the phosphate-wasting defect. (Tier 3)
Relative Risk
(Include any high risk racial or ethnic subgroups)
Information on relative risk was not available for the Pediatric context.
Presentation is variable among families even within the same pedigree with patients’ presentations ranging from age 1 to 45 with variable clinical features. (Tier 3)
4. What is the Nature of the Intervention?
Nature of Intervention
In general, prescribing phosphate intake in disorders of phosphate wasting is a balance between excessive dosage tending to hyperparathyroidism and insufficient dosage slowing the healing of rickets. Toxicity from vitamin D analog supplementation may result in hypercalciuria, requiring monitoring of urinary calcium and creatinine. As for many chronic diseases, compliance to oral treatment in phosphate wasting is a major issue, even in expert hands. No specific harms of treatment in ADHR were identified.
5. Would the underlying risk or condition escape detection prior to harm in the settting of recommended care?
Chance to Escape Clinical Detection
Patients may have a delayed onset of phenotype and may display features that are not seen in other hereditary phosphaturic disorders, this may lead to difficulties in establishing the presence of the disorder. (Tier 3)
Description of sources of evidence:
Tier 1: Evidence from a systematic review, or a meta-analysis or clinical practice guideline clearly based on a systematic review.
Tier 2: Evidence from clinical practice guidelines or broad-based expert consensus with non-systematic evidence review.
Tier 3: Evidence from another source with non-systematic review of evidence with primary literature cited.
Tier 4: Evidence from another source with non-systematic review of evidence with no citations to primary data sources.
Tier 5: Evidence from a non-systematically identified source.
