Urolithiasis in childhood.J Med. 1980; 11(5-6):439-47.JM
A complete evaluation of 1337 cases from a total of 1799 children seen with urinary tract stones was made. Factors known to be associated with this disease have been carefully documented. No definite conclusions as to the etiology of the disease could be drawn. However, malnutrition, lower socio-economic homes, sex (male:female = 5:1) and occurrence from a younger age were the most consistent predominant factors.
