X-linked hypophosphatemia or XLH (also known as familial hypophosphatemia, or, incorrectly, as Vitamin D-resistant rickets) is an extremely rare genetic disorder that causes the wasting of phosphorus, leading to problems with bone, tooth and muscle growth, development and function. The XLH Network, Inc. is an emerging non-profit organization, springing from an international voluntary organization whose members are affected by, or interested in, XLH and other related phosphate-wasting diseases, such as the autosomal hypophosphatemias and Tumor Induced Osteomalacia (TIO).
