Abstract

The incidence of renal tubular dysfunction, especially renal tubular acidosis (RTA) has usually been reported to be low among recurrent renal stone formers1. We have found, when the acidification capacity was routinely investigated in recurrent stone formers, that a large number of patients (20%) had defective urinary acidification2 of which 95% had the incomplete form of the defect. A further analysis of the clinical and biochemical findings will be presented.
