BACKGROUND Studies on the frequency of the different types of urinary crystals and the role of Fourier transform infrared microspectroscopy (FTIRM) for identification are few. We describe the results of a retrospective study on the prevalence and typology of crystalluria and on the role of FTIRM. METHODS Urinary crystals were identified using the combined… CONTINUE READING
