Urinary stone formation is now a well recognized sequela of bowel disease1,2. It occurs in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and in patients with an ileostomy or a bowel resection, particularly of the small bowel. The formation of urinary stones, however, seems to be related more to surgical treatment than to the underlying bowel disease or to its medical management. The prevalence of stone disease in patients following bowel surgery is between 5 and 15% and both uric acid3 and calcium oxalate4 stones may be formed.
