 CASE REPORT

Histopatologic findings in a case of pulmonary oxalosis

Mugnaini L., Laurendi G., Petroianni A., Bisetti A.

Primitive pulmonary oxalosis is a rare and subclinical disease. When it is diagnosed in patients with respiratory symptoms, it is frequently associated with the presence of an infection by Aspergillus niger. Oxalate deposition in other organs such as the kidneys, can be the result of a massive intake of ascorbic acid. We present the histopathologic findings in a case of primitive pulmonary oxalosis.
