    General Discussion
    Primary Hyperoxaluria (Type I) is a hereditary disorder characterized by an inborn error of glyoxylate. Excessive formation of oxalate occurs in the liver, resulting in excessive levels of oxalate in the blood and urine. Calcium oxalate does not dissolve and consequently stones are formed in the urinary tract.
