  author={Aamir Jalal Al-Mosawi},
Background: Most treatments for childhood urolithiasis are preventive, and conservative management such as chemical dissolution has its limitations. As a result, open surgery is still required in childhood lithiasis. With lithotripsy, repeated sessions are often required, a uretral stent may be required and the shock wave may damage the renal parenchyma, particularly when nephrocalcinosis is present. Some authors have reported the disappearance of radiological-proven calculi in adult patients… 
The treatment of childhood progressive bilateral multiple renal stone disease: A role of essential oil terpenes
The possible adjunctive role of essential oil preparations of terpenic in the management of serious childhood urolithiasis is emphasized.
Essential oil terpenes: adjunctive role in the management of childhood urolithiasis.
The aim of this article is to extract the useful and worthy information about the use of these terpenes in urolithiasis from the previous literature as many of these articles are now considered of poor quality for a thorough systematic scientific review.

Idiopathic hyperuricosuria, hypercalciuria and infantile renal stone disease: new association and therapeutic approach
The novel association of IHU, IHC and progressive infantile bilateral renal stone disease is reported and the therapeutic approach for this new association is reported, combining traditional treatments of hyperuricosuria (HU) and hypercalciuria (HC) with recently used essential oil terpenes in the management of childhood and infantile urolithiasis.

Evaluation of the efficiency of tamsulosin and Rowatinex in patients with distal ureteral stones: a prospective, randomized, controlled study
Medical treatment with tamsulosin seems to be effective in patients with distal ureteral stones <10 mm in size, however, use of Rowatinex does not seem to have any significant effect on clearance rate of distaluteral calculi.

The treatment of severe forms birth asphyxia induced brain atrophy is a highly challenging situation that demands highly motivated parents that are able to cope with multiple therapies over a prolonged period, for an obvious improvement to occur.
Effect of Rowatinex on calculus clearance after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.
Rowatinex does not have a significant effect on clearance rate of kidney calculi after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, however, it can accelerate calculus passage after 2 weeks, and it does not has any significant adverse effects.
Dramatic effect of a non-17α alkyl testosterone derivative anabolic agent on growth in a child with achondroplasia in the short term
The effects of a limited number of doses of nandrolone decanoate in a child with achondroplasia and very slow growth in the short term are reported.
Alterations of blood IL-8, TGF-β1 and nitric oxide levels in relation to blood cells in patients with acute brain injury
Background: Acute brain injury (ABI) disrupts homeostasis in tissue brain. Inflammation has an important contributory role in the pathogenesis of the disease and blood cell count alteration has been


Evaluation and treatment of pediatric idiopathic urolithiasis—revisited
In many hypercalciuric children, low-Na/high-K diet alone is effective, while in most others the addition of potassium citrate is well tolerated, normalizes calciuria, and protects against new stone formation, which is a step-wise approach in evaluating children with idiopathic urolithiasis in Western society.
Urolithiasis in childhood.
Evaluation of children with suspected urolithiasis should include a careful history and physical examination to identify associated symptoms and signs and factors known to predispose to calculus formation, appropriate radiographic and blood studies, and timed urine collections.
Urolithiasis in childhood: current management.
During the past 12 years, 62 children with urinary stones have been treated at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The most common presenting symptoms were abdominal or flank pain (45%),
Hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis in children.
Concern about the risk and progression of nephrocalcinosis is provoking reevaluation of well-established metabolic therapies, and new urinary inhibitors of crystal formation and aggregation have recently been identified.

It is concluded that long-term administration of alkali citrate is beneficial in patients with PH and resulted in improved renal function and reduced passage of stones.
Pediatric urolithiasis : Urolithiasis
With current technical sophistication of transurethral and percutaneous techniques and extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, management of urolithiasis during childhood should be relatively straightforward.
Rowatinex for the treatment of ureterolithiasis.
It is concluded that early treatment with Rowatinex for patients with ureteral stones is indicated before other more aggressive measures are considered.
Inorganic phosphate treatment of nephrolithiasis.
Phosphate therapy had no effect on urinary calcium excretion or stone passage but did appear to reduce the need for lithotomy in patients suffering from recurrent calcium-containing urinary calculi.
Primary hyperoxaluria type 2 in children
All children with nephrolithiasis secondary to hyperoxaluria should have urinary glycerate measured, as PH2 may be more prevalent than currently estimated, and DNA mutational analysis may be useful in supporting the diagnosis.
Effect of medical management and residual fragments on recurrent stone formation following shock wave lithotripsy.
The significance of so-called clinically insignificant residual fragments following shock wave lithotripsy in 26 of the 36 patients with residual fragments demonstrated significant stone growth during followup, suggesting that these fragments were not insignificant.
