Systemic oxalosis: Pathognomonic renal and specific extrarenal findings on US and CT
- 57 Downloads
Hyperoxaluria is characterized by nephrocalcinosis and nephrolithiasis on radiological examination and may also result in diffuse deposition of calcium oxalate crystals in multiple extrarenal organs (oxalosis). In two cases, the renal findings of primary hyperoxaluria were diagnosed by ultrasound and computed tomography scans. In addition to renal involvement, both patients had liver involvement, and one patient had cardiac involvement.
