What is Oncogenic osteomalacia?

  • Oncogenic osteomalacia: A rare type of cancer (mesenchymal) that results in osteomalacia or rickets. Osteomalacia and rickets normally occurs as a consequence of a diet deprived of vitamin D. The tumor can occur in bone or soft tissue. The removal of the tumor alleviates the osteomalacia.

Oncogenic osteomalacia is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Oncogenic osteomalacia, or a subtype of Oncogenic osteomalacia, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
