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