Urinary tract calculi in aboriginal children.
ABSTRACT Forty-three Aboriginal children with urinary tract calculi are reviewed. There was a preponderance of male children and the majority presented early in life with urinary tract infection. Associated gastrointestinal and other problems were also common. The calculi caused considerable morbidity: 34 major surgical procedures were undertaken and three kidneys were lost.
