Hypophosphatasia

Official Community

Hypophosphatasia (hypo-fahs-fuh-tay-shuh) or HPP is an inherited (genetic) metabolic bone condition that most often affects the development of bones and teeth. The signs and symptoms vary widely, with mild cases causing only dental abnormalities while the more severe types have life-threatening consequences. The hallmark of the disorder is bones that become soft or weakened, causing skeletal deformities, fractures, premature tooth loss and pain.
