Abstract
Albright's Hereditary Osteodystrophy (AHO) is characterised by
obesity, short stature, round face, brachydactyly, subcutaneous
ossifications, mental retardation in some cases, hypocalcemia,
and elevated serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) level. In this
syndrome, there may be pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP)
characterised by end-organ unresponsiveness to PTH. In this
report, we present an AHO case with unusual manifestation by
presenting dementia which has not been previously reported.

Key words: albright?s hereditary osteodystrophy, dementia, pseudohypoparathyroidism
