  • PseudohypoPARAthyroidism is characterized by an inability of some portions of the kidney to respond to
    parathyroid hormone (PTH), which is termed resistance to PTH. This condition is associated with low serum levels
    of calcium and high serum levels of phosphorus but unlike other forms of hypoparathyroidism the PTH level is high
    rather than low. There are several different types of pseudohypoPARAthyroidism, types 1A and 1B, type 1B, and
    type 2.
