BACKGROUND Idiopathic hypercalciuria (IHc) and idiopathic hypocitraturia are frequently associated with calcium nephrolithiasis. We investigated the relationship of vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms (BsmI, TaqI and FokI) to urinary supersaturation of calcium oxalate salts in recurrent calcium oxalate stone formers with IHc and the clinical relevance of this relationship. METHODS The study included 110 Caucasian stone formers with IHc and 127 unrelated healthy controls without history of… CONTINUE READING
