Example text

The peak incidence occurs between the ages of 20 and 30 years. Kidney stones are a major cause of morbidity due to associated renal colic, urinary tract obstruction, urinary tract infection (UTI), and renal parenchymal damage. In the United States, calcium-containing stones make up approximately 90% of all stones; they contain primarily calcium oxalate, either alone or in combination with calcium phosphate. The remaining 10% are composed of uric acid, struvite-carbonate, and cystine. A kidney stone can form only when urine is supersaturated with respect to a stone-forming salt.

Bisphosphonates have become the agents of choice for the management of hypercalcemia due to bone reabsorption. They are analogues of inorganic pyrophosphate that are selectively concentrated in bone, where they interfere with osteoclast attachment and function. Bisphosphonates have a slow onset (2 to 3 days) and a long duration of action (several weeks). Etidronate was the first bisphosphonate approved for the treatment of hypercalcemia. The serum calcium concentration begins to fall on day 2 with etidronate and reaches a nadir on day 7.

Chronic renal disease impairs the hydroxylation of calcidiol to calcitriol. Vitamin D–dependent rickets is a result of either the impaired hydroxylation of calcidiol to calcitriol (type I) or end-organ resistance to calcitriol (type II). Type I patients respond to physiologic doses of calcitriol. Patients with type II disease have dramatically increased concentrations of calcitriol, respond poorly to calcitriol therapy, and have mutations in the vitamin D receptor. 3. Other rare causes of hypocalcemia include the tumor lysis syndrome, osteoblastic metastases, acute pancreatitis, toxic shock syndrome, and sepsis.
