Oncogenic hypophostphatemic osteomalacia is rare form of osteomalacia with few cases reported in the literature. It is characterized by later onset in adulthood, renal phosphate loss with hypophosphatemia and poor bone mineralization. The syndrome is associated with mesenchymal tumours or prostatic CA. We report a case of oncogenic hypophosphatemic ostoemalacia associated with neurofibromatosis.
