Abstract

The study of crystals in stone patients has helped to properly evaluate and treat patients with urinary stone disease (1). The relative merits of early morning urine (EMU) samples and those randomly collected are hotly debated. This paper analyzes the differences between the findings from EMU and random urine samples collected from 200 crystalluric patients.
