Nephrolithiasis due to primary hyperparathyroidism and enteric hyperoxaluria: A case report

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Enteric hyperoxaluria and primary hyperparathyroidism have been associated with the development of nephrolithiasis. We report a case involving a patient who had hyperparathyroidism due to a parathyroid adenoma and enteric hyperoxaluria resulting from a small bowel bypass and who had severe stone- related complications. This combination of stone-generating factors has heretofore not been reported. The pathophysiology of these entities is discussed.
