Oxalosis is a rare metabolic disorder that has no satisfactory modality for long-term therapy. A case of oxalosis with a fulminating vascular syndrome after bilateral nephrectomy is presented. The vascular system had extensive medial oxalate crystal deposition. These acute vascular changes seem to have been precipitated by removal of the kidneys and, therefore, bilateral nephrectomy is contraindicated in patients with oxalosis.
