Urolithiasis is increasing in prevalence and causes substantial morbidity and economic burden. Aside from "acute" stone episodes, urolithiasis should be regarded as a systemic disorder and investigated fully. Practical guidance is given for the medical investigation, diagnosis and treatment of urolithiasis. A single episode of urolithiasis should prompt a review of potential risk factors for recurrent disease and appropriate baseline investigations should be performed. Further biochemical tests may then be directed appropriately and allow individualised advice and treatment to be given to the patient with urolithiasis. © 2010 British Association of Urological Surgeons.
