Few previous studies of urinary tract concretions have focused on prostatic calculi. While less clinically significant than renal lithiasis, prostatic stones can, under certain circumstances, produce severe urinary tract problems. In addition, insights into the mechanism of formation of prostatic concretions can provide a better understanding of aspects of renal calculus disease.
