ABSTRACT
Last year, an epidemic of infantile urinary stone disease developed in China. Investigation revealed that melamine-tainted diary product caused urinary stone in these infants. Young infants were susceptible to the melamine toxicity and dehydration or other stone-prone factors aggravated the toxicity. Melamine-related urinary stones were small, multiple, and mainly composed of uric acid, thus conservative treatment of hydration and urine alkalinization worked well in majority of the patients.
Key words: Melamine | Urinary stone | Tainted milk
