Abstract

In 1936 Randall and Melkin1 reported that papillary tip calcification occurred more frequently in patients with stone disease than in non-stone formers. Since then many authors2−7 have regarded so-called Randall’s plaques as the first manifestation of urinary stones; yet, little is known about intrarenal crystallization8,9. The aim of this study was to attempt to detect primary sites of intrarenal crystallization and to describe any differences that there might be between stone formers and healthy persons10,11.
