The principal design of the present essay is to make known the existence, and to describe the leading properties of a new species of urinary calculus from the human bladder; but I shall at the same time take the opportunity of correcting an inaccuracy or two that I have observed in my former communication on this subject. (Phil. Trans. 1797.) I, on that occasion, took notice of five kinds of urinary calculi, 1. The lithic acid, since called uric acid, originally analysed by Scheele. 2. The… Expand
The chemistry of urinary stones around 1800: a first in clinical chemistry.
At the end of the 18th century, as soon as modern chemistry was created, dedicated physicians tried to apply it to medicine. A rewarding field was that of urinary lithiasis. Stones offered aExpand

Cystine stones were first reported in 1810 by Wollaston; some sixty years later there was a review of 53 cases varying from 2 to 50 years of age (Niemann 1876). Cystinuria was described by Garrod inExpand
Stone Nomenclature and History of Instrumentation for Urinary Stone Disease
The first part of this chapter addresses some history that underlies the current names the authors use for urinary calculi. Expand
[Pathogenesis of urolithiasis].
Urinary stone disease is one of the oldest and most ubiquitous diseases known to man and stones were well-recognised in Classical times by Hippocrates in Greece (Adams 1939) and by Celsus in Rome (Desnos 1914). Expand
The chemical work of Alexander and Jane Marcet.
Alexander Marcet was an authority on urinary calculi and their analysis when few medical practitioners appreciated the usefulness of chemistry in the explanation and treatment of disease. In An EssayExpand
Cystine calculi I in the dog: an epidemiological retrospective study
It was shown that obstructive cystine calculi occur in male dogs of all ages, but not in females or pups, and that this condition affects only male dogs after sexual maturity. Expand
The renal clearances of the 4 di-amino acids were shown to be abnormally high, leading Dent and Rose to conclude that the gross cystinuria characteristic of this disease was due to defective tubular reabsorption rather than impaired metabolism of cystine. Expand
Cystinuria and Cystine Lithiasis
Calculi composed mostly of cystine (SCH2CH(COOH)NH2)2, an amino acid which is a part of the protein molecule, are among the rarer stones found in the kidney. The disease which we call cystinuria isExpand
Heterozygous cystinuria and calcium oxalate urolithiasis.
It is indicated that carrier status for 1 of the cystinuria genes predisposes to calcium oxalate stone formation but, like other factors related to urolithiasis, it is not a necessary cause of stone disease. Expand
Genetics of Urolithiasis
A genetic basis for specific metabolic disorders that lead to urolithiasis, such as cystinuria and oxaluria, is well established and few comprehensive reviews of the genetic basis of urolithsiasis are available. Expand
