The other 2 patterns of proximal tubular damage are characteristically seen in patients with clinical Fanconi syndrome exhibiting type II renal tubular acidosis, phosphaturia, hyperuricemia, aminoaciduria, and glycosuria without hyperglycemia (those associated with cytoplasmic inclusions in proximal tubular cells and those with constipated lysosomes).

Respiratory distress and developmental delay were the commonest presentations.3 A study screened 2,000 children for IEM by paper chromatography of urine and identified two sisters with alkaptonuria.4 At Mayo Hospital, Lahore, one case of alkaptonuria and three siblings with mental retardation and aminoaciduria were detected from among 2,000 children screened.5 These studies show that IEM, though undiagnosed, are not uncommon in our set-up.
Treem and Stanley concluded that secondary carnitine deficiency in cystic fibrosis may be caused by chronic malnutrition, feeding infants with low-carnitine baby milk, loss of appetite, vomiting due to frequent lower respiratory tract infections, vitamin D deficiency, secondary hyperparathyroidism followed by renal tubule defect with hyperphosphaturia, aminoaciduria and tubule acidosis [19].
