Summary

A prospective study was carried out among 52 patients presenting with their first attack of renal stones. During a 4-year followup period half of them developed recurrent stones. This occurred more often in males than in females and particularly in individuals with a high urinary calcium. However, the overlap between the two groups was large and in the individual patient determinations of serum and urinary electrolytes could not predict the risk of recurrence.
