Abstract Adenine phosphoribosyl transferase deficiency is a rare metabolic abnormality presenting with 2,8 dihydroxyadenine urolithiasis. The stones are characteristically radiolucent and therefore need to be differentiated from uric acid stones which are also radiolucent and have identical chemical reactivity. No cases of 2, 8- dihydroxyadenine urolithiasis have been reported from India. We report a 3 year old child with 2, 8- dihydroxyadenine urolithiasis and acute renal failure.
