Fanconi Syndrome is the dysfunction of kidney proximal renal tubules (caused by drugs or heavy metals) in which amino acids, glucose, bicarboantes, uric acid and phosphates are passed into the urine instead of reabsorbing. Common causes are galactose, glycogen, fructose and cysteine.
Fanconi syndrome consists of number of defects in renal proximal tubular reabsorption, resulting in phosphaturia, glucosuria, generalized aminoaciduria, and wasting of HCO 3 . Symptoms include failure to thrive, growth retardation,rickets in children and osteomalacia, muscle weakness in adults. Glucosuria, aminoaciduria and phosphaturia diagnose Fanconi syndrome. Treatment includes replacement of HCO 3 and renal failure measures. Fanconi syndrome can be classified as hereditary and acquired fanconi syndrome.
