Fanconi Syndrome in Irish Wolfhound Siblings

Linda Morrison, Nicholas Bommer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three juvenile male Irish wolfhound littermates presented with marked polyuria and polydipsia. The four female siblings were apparently unaffected. Diagnostic testing revealed glucosuria with normoglycaemia, generalised aminoaciduria, hypokalaemia and metabolic acidosis consistent with Fanconi syndrome. Renal ultrasonographic and histologic findings are presented. Cases were managed with a supplementation regime based on a treatment protocol for Fanconi syndrome in Basenjis. These dogs did not have angular limb deformities as documented previously in canine siblings with Fanconi syndrome. Fanconi syndrome has not been previously described in Irish wolfhound siblings.
