Abstract

Patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) have an increased incidence of nephrolithiasis (4–19%). Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis can modify urinary solute concentration and acid-basic equilibrium. The present study was undertaken in order to evaluate lithogenic factors and renal stone disease in patients with IBD.
