Abstract

Once considered rare, pediatric nephrolithiasis has become a critical field of study in the last decade due to the rapid increase in incidence. Understanding the changing epidemiology and lifelong implications of pediatric stone disease is critically important to effectively manage the individual patient as well as identify risk factors for childhood onset that could be modified. Determining the role of diagnostic imaging in children is a unique challenge as limiting radiation and imaging stewardship should be priorities. Approaches to management have also changed, as technology continues to evolve and both medical and surgical options expand.
