Case Report

Cystinuria as a Cause of Abdominal Pain in Children

MWS Yu, CC Shek, WKY Chan, KW Lee


Urolithiasis is an uncommon renal problem in paediatrics. Once identified, however, a thorough investigation should be performed to look for the underlying cause. Children with renal stone may present as haematuria, recurrent abdominal pain and urinary tract infection. Since abdominal colic is a common reason for medical consultation, rare cause like renal stone can be easily overlooked. We reported an infant presented as recurrent abdominal pain and positive urine culture. Subsequent work up revealed the diagnosis of Type A cystinuria.
