  1. Urolithiasis

    Urolithiasis is the condition where urinary stones are formed or located anywhere in the urinary system. The term nephrolithiasis refers to stones that are in the kidney, while ureterolithiasis refers to stones that are in the ureter. The term cystolithiasis refers to stones which form or have passed into the urinary bladder. Urinary stones are typically classified by their location or by their chemical composition. In humans, calcium oxalate is a major constituent of most urinary stones. About 80% of those with kidney stones are men. Men most commonly experience their first episode between 20-30 years of age, while for women the age at first presentation is somewhat later.
