A Case of Fanconi Syndrome Associated with Long-term Treatment with Zoledronate.

Internal Medicine 2022 November 31
Intravenous bisphosphonate therapy is used to prevent fractures in the management of bone metastasis. However, it may induce renal damage. We herein report an 81-year-old woman with Fanconi syndrome and osteomalacia who had been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and received treatment with zolendronate for over 5 years. Her bone markers normalized after switching zolendronate to denosmab and starting vitamin D and mineral supplementation. This case shows that chronic renal damage induced by zolendronate can cause osteomalacia. In patients with intravenous zolendronate therapy, close monitoring of renal and bone markers is needed, even under long-term therapy.
