Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism and spinal cord compression.


A 42 year old Greek male with pseudo-pseudohypoparathyroidism presented with difficulty in walking and with lower limb weakness. His physical signs included short stature, thick neck, short fourth metacarpals and metatarsals, and a spastic paraparesis. Serum calcium and phosphate and parathyroid concentrations were normal. Myelography demonstrated compression of the cervical and lumbar cord in association with local bony abnormalities.
