Abstract

The influence of bacterial urease in the calculogenesis of struvite and apatite calculi is well known1−4. The significance of urinary tract infection (UTI) among other stone formers and its relationship to the types of stones is less clear. The aim of the present study was to investigate the frequency of UTI in patients that had been admitted to the clinic for renal stone disease. Stone analysis, frequency and level of surgery for stones in relation to infection were also included in the survey.
