Abstract

Fanconi syndrome (FS) can present with hypophosphatemia, renal glycosuria, hypouricemia and aminoaciduria. Phosphate depletion is the most critical clinical aspect of FS as it leads to osteomalacia. Some patients present with symptoms and signs related to hypophosphatemic osteomalacia (HO). Thus, these patients present with these symptoms and are misdiagnosed. From an investigation of the published literature, HO symptoms are found to be non‑specific and were thus misdiagnosed in various centers. The present study describes the case of a a 46‑year‑old male with FS who suffered from joint pain and was first misdiagnosed. After he was referred to the authors' hospital, his case was evaluated and following a consideration of the results of this evaluation, he was diagnosed with idiopathic FS with multiple osteoporotic fractures. Furthermore, the present study performs a brief literature review other cases of patients that were misdiagnosed and whose symptoms were later found to be due to HO are also discussed. It is hoped that the present study may increase the awareness of HO among physicians and may help to draw attention to such cases of patients presenting with non‑specific symptoms.
