Abstract

Paraplegics have a higher than normal incidence of renal calculi1. Hypercalciuria is common in the early months following the onset of a spinal cord lesion, but calculi from such patients are almost invariably associated with chronic urinary infection and the majority consist principally of calcium phosphate and magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP)1.
