Abstract

The increasing attention of the medical and surgical profession to pathologic conditions of the urinary tract in children and the possibility of more than incidental association of bone suppuration and renal calculi suggested the advisability of making this report. UROLITHIASIS IN CHILDREN Young1 stated that urolithiasis is very common in children in some countries, but that it is far less common in children in America. Holt2 noted that at necropsy small stones were found in the urinary tract of children in the first two years of life. Rafin3 reported 322 cases in infants. Bokay4 collected 1,836 cases of calculi in infants and children. Twenty-five per cent of Thomson's5 3,492 cases of urinary lithiasis in China occurred in children under 10 years of age, the youngest being 2 years old. Thomas and Tanner6 collected 197 cases of calculi reported in children in this country. They
