Renal Calculi - Kidney Stone

The formation of urinary stones usually takes place in the kidney and from there it passes down the ureter into the bladder,causing severe pain during its travel along the ureter.This severe pain is known as Renal colic.But when the size of the stone is big it remains in the kidney,causing severe or less pain or no pain at all.Hereditary gout or rheumatism plays important role in formation of Renal Calculi
