  1. Racial variation in gender frequency of calcium urolithiasis.

    Article - En anglais

    Calcium oxalate stones are known to occur most frequently in the fifth and sixth decades of life and in a male-to-female ratio of approximately 2 : 1. However, previous data are from predominantly white populations or from multiracial populations that have included patients with infection stones.

    We reviewed a population of 444 consecutive patients (189 white, 123 black and 132 Hispanic) from 1 urban hospital treated by shock wave lithotripsy for symptomatic renal and ureteral calculi, and added a population of 260 patients treated at a university hospital in Japan.

    Patients with infection stones and those with uric acid or cystine stones were excluded.
