Hypercalciuria is probably the most common biochemical abnormality in patients with Ca urolithiasis.1–3 Although reported estimates vary, hypercalciuria may be found in the majority of patients suffering from Ca stones. Because of this high incidence, the excessive renal excretion of Ca has been considered to be etiologically important in stone formation. Thus, considerable work has been directed toward the delineation of pathogenesis, diagnostic criteria, and treatment of hypercalciuria.
