Calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease revealing a hypersensitivity to vitamin D.
Joint Bone Spine. 2017 Jan 18. pii: S1297-319X(16)30209-3. doi: 10.1016/j.jbspin.2016.11.006. [Epub ahead of print]
- CYP24A1 functions to remove excess activated vitamin D from the body
- A rare mutation of the gene results in Vitamin D accumulating in the body
- It is no surprise that this would result in hypersensitivity to Vitamin D
- Calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease used to be called pseudogout
- This gene malfunction is a rare cause of pseudogout
- No indications of exactly how rare this is in either the abstract or online

Hypersensitivity to vitamin D (HVD) due to a loss of function mutation of the CYP24A1 gene, which encodes vitamin D catabolizing enzyme was initially described as a cause of acute hypercalcemia in children and chronic renal diseases in adults.
We describe the first case of a patient presenting a calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPDD) revealing a HVD.
An abnormality of phospho-calcic metabolism was discovered during the course of an etiological workup for CPDD in a 52-year-old patient. Laboratory tests revealed a blood calcium level at the upper limit of normal range, a markedly low parathormone level, a 25-hydroxyvitamin D level within the upper level of normal, an elevated 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D level and an elevated urine calcium level. CYP24A1 gene sequencing analysis revealed two mutations in a heterozygous state. The study of the 25-hydroxyvitamin D3: 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 ratio, two metabolites of vitamin D confirmed the enzyme deficiency in vivo. Our observation suggests that this disease could correspond to a rare cause of CPDD.
In cases of CPDD associated with calcium values within the upper limit of normal range (or hypercalcemia) with an abnormally low PTH, one could suggest searching for HVD.
