The management of chronic urinary infection in the presence of urinary calculi presents some problems. A persistence of infection or its recurrence is well known. However, many stones may remain silent until either an attack of renal colic occurs or signs and symptoms of renal damage supervene. Identification of the causative bacteria and the knowledge of the composition of the stone will greatly help in adopting proper treatment (1).
