» A kidney stone, also known as a renal calculus (from the Latin rēnēs, “kidneys,” and calculus, “pebble”), is a solid concretion or crystal aggregation formed in the kidneys from dietary minerals in the urine. » Urolithiasis (UL) is one of the most common diseases, with approximately 7.6% incidence in Western India. Although most patients have only one stone episode, 25% of patients experience recurrent stone formation. UL therefore has a significant impact on quality of life and socioeconomic factors.
