A marked increase in the incidence of urinary-stone disease has been correlated with the affluence of the population. Affluence has led to an increase in consumption of alcoholic drinks. The present study was performed to find out the variations in the values of biochemical parameters in alcohol-consuming stone formers and non-alcoholic stone formers, and to assess the effect of these on the risk of stone formation.
