The clinical onset is often insidious, and the proximal tubular damage caused by the crystals typically manifests with features of Fanconi syndrome, including normoglycemic glycosuria, aminoaciduria, hyperuricosuria, hyperphosphaturia, and type II renal tubular acidosis.
Women with either a historical risk factor (previous macrosomic infant, first degree relative with diabetes mellitus, previous unexplained stillbirth, maternal age > 40 years or maternal weight > 90 kg) or a risk unique to the current pregnancy (confirmed glycosuria, polyhydramnios or suspected macrosomia) were screened.
