Abstract

Previous investigations in Thailand have revealed several etiological factors involved in the pathogenesis of bladder stone formation1,2: (a) a low dietary phosphate intake; (b) a consumption of high oxalate-containing vegetables; (c) a high urinary ammonia and uric acid excretion; and (d) a reduced urine volume from some degree of dehydration. These factors lead to heavy oxalate and urate crystalluria and crystal clumping which may eventually form the nuclei of stones.
