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 1998, to throw light on the different aspects of paediatric urolithiasis. The incidence was found to be high (8.41 percent) 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.
