Urinary tract stones (nefrolithiasis, urolithiasis) is an endemic disease, which is seen in developing countries including our country. In this study, our aim was to evoluate the patients with the diagnosis of urolithiasis retrospectively, between the years of 2013 to 2014. On this purpose, 80 patients diagnosed with urolithiasis were evaluated retrospectively.
There was not any statistically significant difference between the patients evaluated by means on sex (50% were female). 62,5% of the patients were under the age of five years. Positive family history for urolithiasis was determined in 37.5% of the patients. Renal stones were detected on the left kidney in 47,5% of the patients. Full urinalysis showed hematuria in 32,5% of the patients, pyuria in 27,5%, proteinuria in 13.75% respectively. The mostly seen metabolic disorder was hiperoxaluria with 25% (also hiperuricasiduria was seen in 21%, and hipercalciuria in 10%). The patient were taken under control with medical treatment and metaphylactic diet according to the metabolic test results. Accompanying anatomic abnormalities were seen low rates.
As a result, we can say that urolithiasis can be treated with the help of metaphylactic preventions and metabolic analysis in childhood.
