Only a very few reports are available in the world lite­rature and almost no report are available in our country regarding urolithiasis in children. The incidence of uro­lithiasis is much more common in the western part of Orissa compared to other parts. This study was conducted during the last 10 years, i.e., from January 1988 to Janu­ary 1998, to throw light on the different aspects of paedi­atric urolithiasis. The incidence was found to be high (8.41 %) with a male preponderance (male: female, 29: 1). Children below 10 years of age were the common victims. This disease was found to be more common in lower socio-economic status group, which is used to cheaper non-vegetarian diet. In the absence of facilities for ESWL and endoscopic stone removal, open surgery was the choice of the treatment.
