Abstract

Urinary tract infection (UTI) encountered in urinary stone patients could be the cause or the effect of stone incidence. Patients with neurogenic bladders (1) and those with urinary diversion procedures (2) have a definitely increased risk of stone formation. Modern investigations confirm the involvement of the bacteriological enzyme, urease, in the etiology of stone formation. In this paper, we report the incidence of UTI in 400 urinary stone patients.
