Abstract

Kidney stone disease has a multifactorial etiology involving the interaction of genetic and environmental factors. There is an increased risk of stone formation in the relatives of idiopathic stone patients, which can be explained up to 60% by genetic factors. This study was conducted to explore the association of vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms with the risk of urolithiasis (UL) in Turkish children.
