Answer

Hereditary hypoparathyroidism may be familial or sporadic, and it can occur as an isolated entity or can be associated with other endocrine manifestations. The familial forms include autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive, as well as a sex-linked form of early onset, for which the gene has been located on the long arm of the X chromosome.
