Abstract

Many studies revealed contradictory results concerning hypocitraturia with patients having urinary calculi. Reasons for the different results could have been differing experimental conditions. Without consideration of the dependence of citrate excretion on age, sex, and nutrition of the test groups, existing differences in citrate excretion between healthy individuals and stone formers can be concealed.
