The term 'phosphatonin', which refers to a circulating factor that influences and controls renal handling of phosphate, was first coined to describe the then putative circulating factor (hormone) in X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets (XLH) and tumour induced osteomalacia (TIO) which was thought to be responsible for the defect in renal phosphate reabsorption characteristic of the diseases.

Those authors described a clinical case of rickets, with hypophosphataemia and hyperphosphaturia resistant to normal doses of vitamin D, and classified this metabolic condition as inheritable X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets (XLHR).
