In recent years, advances in defining the precise molecular defects in both acquired and inherited hypo and hyperphosphatemic syndromes have catapulted our understanding of phosphate homeostatic mechanisms to a new level. The focus of this chapter is the molecular basis of human disorders of phosphate homeostasis. The disorders discussed include hypophosphatemia, tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO), X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets, autosomal dominant hypophosphatemic rickets (ADHR), hyperphosphatemia, and hyperphosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis (HFTC). Other disorders of renal phosphate wasting are also considered.
