The article presents the renal ultrasound, the percutaneous renal biopsy, and the fundoscopy of a two-month-old male infant with hypocalcaemic generalized tonic-clonic seizures associated with renal failure, severe metabolic acidosis and pancytopenia. The renal ultrasound illustrated bilateral echogenic kidneys with some loss of corticomedullary differentiation and mild prominence of pelvicalyceal systems. The renal biopsy shows tubules with crystalline oxalate deposits.
