Abstract


ABSTRACT
Of the 120 stones analysed, 54 were renal in origin, 52 were bladder stones, 2
were ureteric stones while 12 were spontaneously passed.92% (111) stones contained
calcium oxalate as the main component. Of these 922%, 58.3% (70) stones were pure
calcium oxalate. The male to female ratio was approximately 6:1. Peak presentation was
in the 15-45 years’ age group
