Abstract

In a survey of 10,000 kidney stones, Herring1 found 944 specimens containing uric acid. A large proportion of these stones consisted of a nucleus of uric acid overlaid with calcium oxalate. The syndrome of calcium oxalate stone formation in normocalciuric-hyperuricosuric patients is well recognised but it is not yet clear whether or not treatment aimed at decreasing uric acid excretion successfully prevents further calcium oxalate stone formation in these patients.
