Abstract

Urolithiasis is common in northeast Thailand (1). However, no epidemiological survey has yet been conducted. In the present study, we report the findings from a community survey to determine the prevalence of upper urinary-tract stones (UTS) in the Baan Fang district of Khon Kaen, a province in the northeast region of Thailand.
