AGUIAR, Cláudia et al. Benign Transient Hyperphosphatasemia Of Infancy And Childhood And Campylobacter Jejuni Infection. Nascer e Crescer [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.1, pp.35-37. ISSN 0872-0754.

Introduction: Benign Transient Hyperphosphatasemia (BTH) is characterised by transient elevation of serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in the absence of liver or bone disease. It has been associated to several entities, namely infections. Case report: We describe the case of a healthy two- year-old child with intermittent episodes of fever, abdominal pain, vomiting and soft stool since two months ago, with no relevant changes on physical examination. The exams revealed elevated ALP (2474 U/L), with normal liver function, calcium and phosphorus. The stool culture was positive for Campylobacter jejuni. Clinical condition was resolved after antibiotic therapy with azithromycin. Six months later serum ALP values were normal. Conclusion: The age of presentation, the absence of underlying disease and subsequent normalization of ALP allow the diagnosis of BTH. It isn´t possible, according to the available literature, to guarantee if the infection was the cause of BTH or if it was the reason to perform the analytical study.
