Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is a rare autosomal recessive disease that is caused by a functional defect of alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase catalysis, resulting in the overproduction of oxalate. The clinical impact of PH1 can be devastating; in most patients it leads to end-stage kidney disease during the first two or three decades of life. Early, effective treatment is essential to optimize prognosis in affected patients.
