Abstract

Renal lithiasis is a common clinical finding in primary hyperparathyroidism although its incidence seems to have been decreasing in recent years1. The incidence ranges from 36% to 76% (mean 55%)2. The incidence of stone-formation was 66% in 159 cases studied in our Foundation over the past 24 years, compared with a 2.7% incidence of hyperparathyroidism in 3,158 cases with renal lithiasis studied over the last 10 years3.
