Abstract

Abnormalities in uric acid metabolism are associated with uric acid and calcium oxalate urolithiasis. Clinical stone formation depends on multiple identifiable risk factors that affect uric acid and calcium oxalate solubility. The understanding of urinary pH is critical to direct appropriate treatment of uric acid-related nephrolithiasis. Understanding uric acid metabolism and the pathophysiology of uric acid and calcium oxalate stone formation leads to a rational treatment approach to uric acid and hyperuricosuric calcium oxalate stone disease.
