Presence of Oxalate-calcium stone in living kidney donor before transplantation may be should make them unselected for kidney donation in some cases

Methods: We conducted this retrospective study to analyze our experience in management of urolithiasis or hyperoxaluria in living kidney donors.

Results: This report is about 3 females aged 49, 43 and 38 years old. All are proposed for kidney donation to their sister. All are not obese, without any medical history and without any pathological symptom such as nephretic colic. We noted no urinary lithiasis on radiographs.
