Introduction. - Oncogenic osteomalacia (OO) is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome characterized by severe hypophosphatemia induced by phosphaturic factors which are secreted by some tumors of mesenchymal origin. Fibroblast Growth Factor 23 (FGF-23) belongs to this family. Measurement of FGF-23 might improve the diagnosis of OO. Exegesis. - We report the case of 71-year-old Caucasian man who had a history of severe osteomalacia with multiples fractures and extreme hypophosphatemia with hyperphosphaturia and normal serum calcium level. Serum FGF-23 was 199 RU/ml (N
