We report four disabled patients with symptomatic epilepsies who were treated with VPA from the age of 5 months, 3, 5 and 5 years respectively and who developed multiple defects of the proximal renal tubules. Fanconi syndrome appears to be a rare but severe consequence of VPA therapy. Therefore patients, especially children with neurological impairments, should be checked for the possible development of VPA induced Fanconi syndrome.
