It is plausible that concurrent metabolic derangements were present which predisposed this particular bird to the development of widespread oxalosis
. For instance, given the severity of the respiratory disease found at necropsy, there may have been a systemic change in pH and/or oxygen concentration from impaired respiratory function that permitted formation of calcium oxalate crystals at sites away from fungal hyphae.

 One also needs to be alert to the possibility of metabolic and genetic diseases such as renal tubular acidosis, cystinosis, and oxalosis
that are sometimes seen in the black African population.

in wild desert tortoises, Gopherus agassizii.
We had forty patients with stone with primary oxalosis
, they were in end stage renal disease and we lost two patients.
Skeletal involvement of oxalosis
is found almost exclusively in evolved primary hyperoxaluria  (genetic overproduction of oxalate) as opposed to secondary oxalosis
(essentially due to chronic kidney disease or increased intestinal absorption).
Reduction of plasma oxalate levels by oral application of Oxalobacter formigenes in 2 patients with infantile oxalosis
. Am J Kidney Dis 2011;58:453-5.
This patient group presented pre-transplant with manifestations of systemic oxalosis
, particularly dense nephrocalcinosis.
Nonglomerular diagnoses included aplastic, hypoplastic, and dysplastic kidneys, cystinosis, medullary cystic disease/ juvenile nephronophthisis, obstructive uropathy, oxalosis
, autosomal dominant and recessive polycystic kidney disease, pyelonephritis/ interstitial nephritis, reflux nephropathy, renal infarct, syndrome of agenesis of abdominal musculature, and Wilm's tumor.
is a rare condition, but those who develop the ocular signs are likely to be already affected by the associated nephropathy.
