Which of the following is not a feature of pseudohypoparathyroidism?
Correct Answer: C. Hypoparathyroidism
- Pseudohypoparathyroidism ( PHP ) is a group of inherited disorders characterised by hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia.
- Hypocalcemia is due to resistance to parathyroid hormone, which results in hyperplasia of parathyroid glands, and thus causing elevation of PTH levels.
