Abstract

Cystinuria is an inherited disorder characterized by abnormalities in the transport of cystine, lysine, ornithine, arginine, and possibly cysteine in both the intestinal tract and renal tubule. Clinically this is important only because of the insolubility of cystine in the urine with resultant cystine calculus formation.
