Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Carnitine deficiency secondary to renal Fanconi's tubulopathy has been described in only a few inborn errors of metabolism: cystinosis, galactosemia, and Fanconi-Bieckel syndrome. We report a 27-month-old infant who presented with a sudden change in gait owing to proximal muscle weakness. The laboratory evaluation showed carnitine deficiency associated with Fanconi's tubulopathy. Eventually, tyrosinemia type I was diagnosed. Carnitine deficiency can contribute to the clinical picture of hepatorenal tyrosinemia and should therefore be evaluated and treated.
