Purpose of review Men have more kidney stones compared with women; however, the difference is progressively decreasing. The reasons for higher prevalence of stones in men, as well as increasing prevalence in women, is a subject of ongoing speculation. In this review, we summarize the evidence of differences between men and women and expand on the speculative causes. Recent findings Stone incidence is rising in women and adolescent girls. Stone disease is more heritable among men than women, and women demonstrate greater influence of the unique environment. Women under the age of 50 years who have been pregnant, have m...

Nephrolithiasis is a common medical condition, but little is known about the occurrence of this condition in pregnant patients. The purpose of our study is to compare the clinical presentation and management of nephrolithiasis in pregnant women compared with non-pregnant women.

CONCLUSIONS: Within the limits of a single-center study, our data quantify CKD as common in PE women and suggest the presence of a "CKD phenotype" characterised by preterm delivery and adequate growth, implying that CKD is compatible with good placental function up to the last phase of pregnancy.

ConclusionCalprotectin concentrations in amnion fluid and stools serve as potential indicators of inflammatory states during pregnancy. Urinary calprotectin concentrations are continuously high during pregnancy and show no significant variations between trimesters 1 –3 and post-partum.

There has been a substantial increase in the utilization of imaging, particularly of multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT), for the evaluation of patients with suspected urolithiasis over the past 2  decades. While the diagnostic accuracy of computed tomography (CT) for urolithiasis is excellent, it has also resulted in substantial medical expenditures and increased ionizing radiation exposure. This is especially concerning in patients with known nephrolithiasis and in younger patients. This p ictorial review will focus on recent trends and controversies in imaging of patients with suspected urolithiasis, includin...

Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered a way to predict the likelihood that a person might have reoccurring kidney stones. The team’s research was published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Data was used from the Rochester Epidemiology Project, where a team of researchers explored a sampling of chronic kidney stones formed from Olmsted County between 1984 and 2017. Some common features of patients who had recurrent stone events included younger age, male sex, a higher body mass index, history of pregnancy, and a family history of stones. The Mayo Clinic team also noted that stone recurrence tended to increase...

Rationale: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the 2nd most common type of cancer in females and the 3rd in males, worldwide. It occurs rarely during pregnancy and is often associated with poor prognosis, due to the unspecific manifestations until advanced stage. Majority of CRC are localized in the rectum (63%) and the sigmoid colon (20%) during pregnancy. Patient concerns: In thisstudy, we report the case of a pregnant woman who was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the ascending colon at her 33rd gestational week. She was referred to our department from local hospital with low fever and right-sided flank pain, which had last...

AbstractAntepartum nephrolithiasis presents a complex clinical scenario which often requires an intervention such as ureteral stent or percutaneous nephrostomy tube (PCNT) placement, especially in the setting of urinary tract infection (UTI). We assess the risk of UTI and preterm labor in the setting of antepartum nephrolithiasis. A retrospective review of an administrative dataset for California and Florida was performed, which included pregnant women admitted for a delivery between 2008 and 2011. Antepartum nephrolithiasis admissions were identified, as were urological intervention (ureteral stent/ureteroscopy) or PCNT p...
