Glossary for Hypoparathyroidism
Medical terms related to Hypoparathyroidism or mentioned in this section include:
- 22q11.2 deletion syndrome: A rare genetic disorder caused by the absence of a small portion of genetic material. A small section of chromosome 22 is missing at a location called q11.2. Chromosome 22 is one of 23 pairs of chromosomes that exist in humans.
- Abnormal blood test symptoms: Abnormal results from diagnostic blood tests.
- Adrenal gland symptoms: Symptoms affecting the adrenal glands
- Alport Syndrome: A rare hereditary disorder involving the progressive deterioration of parts of the kidney resulting in chronic kidney disease.
- Ataxia -- diabetes -- goiter -- gonadal insufficiency: A rare disorder characterized by diabetes, goiter, insufficient hormone production by the gonads and progressive ataxia.
- Autoimmune diseases: A group of disorders in which the primary cause is the an inflammatory reaction caused by the body's own immune system attacking tissues
- Autoimmune polyendocrinopathy syndrome, type 1: A very rare autoimmune disorder characterized by autoimmune polyendocrinopathy (APE), candidiasis (C) and ectodermal dysplasia (ED).
- Bangstad syndrome: A rare disorder characterized by diabetes, goiter, insufficient hormone production by the gonads and progressive ataxia.
- Barakat syndrome: A rare condition characterized by deafness, kidney disease and insufficiency parathyroid hormone production.
- Behavioral symptoms: Symptoms of personal behavior.
- Bilateral abductor vocal cord paralysis syndrome: A complication that can occur following the removal of the thyroid gland.
- Bird-headed dwarfism with progressive ataxia, Insulin-resistant diabetes, goiter and primary gonadal insufficiency: A rare disorder characterized by diabetes, goiter, insufficient hormone production by the gonads and progressive ataxia.
- Blood symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood and its blood cells.
- Cancer: Abnormal overgrowth of body cells.
- Chromosome 10, Monosomy 10p:
- Chromosome 10p deletion syndrome: A rare chromosomal disorder where there is a deletion of the short arm (p) of chromosome 10 resulting in variable abnormalities.
- Chromosome 22q deletion: A rare genetic disorder where a portion of the genetic material from the long arm of chromosome 22 is missing. The symptoms or severity may vary somewhat between patients.
- Chromosome 22q deletion syndrome: A rare chromosomal disorder where the long arm of chromosome 22 is deleted resulting in various abnormalities.
- Congenital hypoparathyroidism, seizures, growth and mental retardation and unusual facies: A rare syndrome characterized mainly by growth and mental retardation, seizures, unusual facial appearance and congenital hypoparathyroidism.
- Dahlberg syndrome: A rare condition characterized by hypoparathyroidism, nephropathy, congenital lymphedema, mitral valve prolapse and short end bones in fingers and toes.
- Deletion 10pter: A very rare syndrome caused by a chromosomal defect (10p terminal deletion) and can result in a variety of malformations that are similar to DiGeorge syndrome and velocardiofacial syndrome.
- Developmental problems: Physical or mental development difficulty.
- DiGeorge syndrome: 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is a genetic disorder which can result in a vast array of symptoms. Various names have been used to describe different manifestations of the syndrome. Di George Syndrome primarily involves an underdeveloped thymus and parathyroid glands which results in lowered immunity low blood calcium levels respectively. Another primary feature is heart defects. Various other variable features are also present. It is not uncommon for patients to have more than one of the 22q11.2 deletion syndrome subtypes which can make diagnosis confusing - other subtypes include Sphrintzen syndrome, Caylor cardiofacial syndrome and CATCH 22.
- DiGeorge's syndrome: Rare form of primary immune deficiency
- Dubowitz Syndrome: A rare genetic and developmental disorder characterized by infantile eczema, small stature, microcephaly and peculiar facial features.
- Endocrine symptoms: Symptoms affecting the endocrine system such as hormones.
- Face symptoms: Symptoms affecting the face
- Fahr's Syndrome: A rare neurologic disorder where calcium is deposited in various parts of the brain resulting in progressive loss of motor and mental function.
- Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
- Hypoparathyroidism: causesd by lack of PTH
- Hypoparathyroidism -- short stature -- mental retardation: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by low parathyroid hormone level, short stature and mental retardation.
- Hypoparathyroidism, autoimmune: A rare autoimmune condition characterized by the inflammation of the parathyroid glands and resulting in a deficiency of parathyroid hormones (parathormone). Parathormone helps controls calcium and phosphorus levels in the body. Symptoms become progressively worse as calcium and phosphorus levels become increasingly imbalanced.
- Infant symptoms: Symptoms affecting babies and infants.
- Kenny-Caffey syndrome, Type 1: A very rare inherited skeletal disorder involving thickening of the long bones of the body and head abnormalities. Type 1 is inherited in a recessive manner and is caused by a genetic defect located at chromosome 1q42-q43.
- Kenny-Caffey syndrome, Type 2: A very rare inherited skeletal disorder involving thickening of the long bones of the body and head abnormalities.
- Limb symptoms: Symptoms affecting the limbs
- Multiple endocrine abnormalities -- adenylyl cyclase dysfunction: A rare syndrome characterized by an enzyme defect (adenylyl cyclase) and a number of endocrine abnormalities.
- Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
- Polyendocrine deficiency syndrome type 2: Multi-endocrine syndrome usually affecting young adults.
- Polyglandular Autoimmune Syndrome: A group of rare genetic disorders characterized by the malfunction of more than one endocrine gland resulting in impaired hormone production. The gland malfunction results from autoimmune damage to the tissue. There are four subtypes of the disorder.
- Thyroid problems: Any condition which affects the thyroid
- Thyroid symptoms: Symptoms affecting the thyroid gland
- Velocardiofacial syndrome: A genetic disorder which can present with a wide range of phenotypic manifestations which has lead to a number of different names being assigned to the various presentations e.g. DiGeorge Syndrome and Cayler Anomaly Face Syndrome. There are nearly 200 different symptoms that can occur and the severity of the condition is also highly variable depending on the nature and severity of the symptoms that are present.
