HFTC is the autosomal recessive inherited form of TC with hyperphosphatemia and normal renal function.
Some HFTC patients develop hyperphosphatemia several years after the onset of dental abnormalities and calcinosis (11).
The management of HFTC mainly targets pain control and phosphate depletion.
However, the patients had other clinical and laboratory results consistent with HFTC diagnosis.
In conclusion, we report two siblings with a novel homozygote GALNT3 mutation representing an HFTC phenotype.
From 1996 to 2001, DC Agenda served as fiscal intermediary for the HFTC Collaboratives, accepting federal agency reimbursement on their behalf and providing capacity-building assistance to each neighborhood-level group.
The HFTC Collaboratives are successful because they connect a needy family with an array of collaborating services that normally function independently of one another.
Other partners in CYIP include the Urban Institute and community-based organizations such as the HFTC Collaboratives.
As with the HFTC Collaboratives and CYIP, cross-sector collaboration played an important role in forming NCRC.
The HFTC Collaboratives have created a network of community-based service providers that work together efficiently and effectively as a web of support for at-risk families and neighborhoods.
