Introduction. Primary hyperoxaluria type-1 (PHI) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by impaired activity of the hepatic peroxisomal alanine-glyoxilate aminotransferase, which leads to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and requires combined liver-kidney transplantation (CLKT). Herein, we have reported 3 children diagnosed with PHI who received CLKT.
