Answer

Sporadic, late-onset hypoparathyroidism is a feature of several hereditary syndromes. These syndromes, and their associated features, are as follows:

  • DiGeorge syndrome: congenital heart disease, cleft palate/lip, and abnormal facies

  • Kearns-Sayre syndrome: heart block, retinitis pigmentosa, and ophthalmoplegia

  • Kenny-Caffey syndrome: medullary stenosis of the long bones and growth retardation
