AHO without any evidence of hormonal resistance, called pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism, is due to paternal loss-of-function mutations in GNAS.
Formerly, the term pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism (PPHP), was used for patients who display AHO features and carry heterozygous inactivating Gsa mutations without evidence of hormone resistance.
When the mutant allele is paternal in origin, as it is in pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism, obesity is often not present or it is less severe.
Additionally, mild resistance to PTH was described in patients having a paternal GNAS mutation, known as pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism (5), demonstrating that the hormonal resistance is not restricted to the maternally inherited mutations.
