Abstract

The red — yellowish color of the uric acid stones is in contradiction with the white color of the pure uric acid. However, no reasonable explanation has been given. At the first Symposium on Uric acid metabolism/ held at Batyam, Israel, I presented the first report on the isolation of a pigment (s) from uric acid stones. Such finding did really explain, on physicochemical terms, the hitherto unexplained color of these stones. At the same time Dr. Kleeberg, from Haifa, found, in the uric acid stones, a similar pigment that could explain the special color of these stones. Although Dr. Kleeberg’s finding was reported about one year later. However he has shown us evidence supporting the simultaneity of both findings.
