Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association of idiopathic urinary tract infection (UTI) and hypercalciuria in Iranian children. METHODS: Seventy children with episodes of UTI, and 70 healthy controls were studied. Random urine calcium-creatinine ratio (UCa/Cr) and plasma calcium were measured. RESULTS: Hypercalciuria was found significantly higher (p<0.05) in UTI patients (30) than normal subjects (11.4). The results showed that frequency of hypercalciuria is higher in females (42.9) than males (17.1). CONCLUSION: The investigation of urinary calcium excretion in children with recurrent UTI is recommended.
