Type E brachydactyly, an autosomal dominant (113300), resembles pseudohypoparathyroidism in respect to short stature, the hand anomaly, and round face, but mental retardation, cataract, and ectopic calcification are not present (McKusick and Milch, 1964).
Pseudohypoparathyroidism should not be confused with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia (174800), to which Albright's name is also attached.
Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism and pseudohypoparathyroidism were present in different members of the same family, Weinberg and Stone (1971) described a family in which a brother and sister and a son and daughter of the brother had typical Albright osteodystrophy.

Pseudohypoparathyroidism is a genetic disorder that resembles hypoparathyroidism (lowered levels of parathyroid hormone) but is caused by a lack of response to parathyroid hormone rather than a deficiency in the hormone itself.
In pseudohypoparathyroidism, there is an adequate amount of PTH but the body cannot respond to it.
Patients with type Ia pseudohypoparathyroidism have an increased incidence of other endocrine abnormalities (such as hypothyroidism and hypogonadism).
