Uric Acid Nephrolithiasis

  • O. Sperling


Uric acid nephrolithiasis refers to a group of conditions with specific etiologies leading to the formation of stones composed of uric acid or urate salts. In the case of mixed stones, the connotation ‘uric acid nephrolithiasis’ is justified only when the etiological evidence is compatible with the above definition. Several investigators have adopted a wider definition, regarding as uric-acid stone patients all patients whose stones were found to contain uric acid or urate (1).
