Urinary Calculi in Children — Epidemiological and Mineralogical Aspects
In contrast to the accurate epidemiological study on urinary lithiasis in adults carried out by Vahlensieck in the Federal Republic of Germany1, no such study has been performed on childhood urolithiasis. Most of the published data on this topic refer to selected clinical or out-patient groups of children. This gives rise to an incorrect understanding of the frequency distribution of urolithiasis and certain stone types depending on age, sex and the type of stone removal.
