Rarely, adults with FHH may experience recurring inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), a build-up of calcium crystals in certain joints of the body (chondrocalcinosis), and a build-up of calcium in the veins (vascular calcification).
This table lists symptoms that people with this disease may have. For most diseases, symptoms will vary from person to person. People with the same disease may not have all the symptoms listed. This information comes from a database called the Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) . The HPO collects information on symptoms that have been described in medical resources. The HPO is updated regularly. Use the HPO ID to access more in-depth information about a symptom.
