原始语种摘要: Purpose(#br)Epidemiological studies demonstrate an association of increased body mass index and risk of kidney stone formation in adults. We conducted a population based pediatric study to examine the epidemiology of nephrolithiasis in Israeli children during a 30-year period, and to determine body mass index distribution during the same period.(#br)Materials and Methods(#br)We accessed data from the compulsory medical evaluations of 17-year-old military service candidates in Israel before their enlistment during 1980 to 2013. Candidates for the army with a history of stone disease were compared to those without such a history.(#br)Results(#br)Of 1,908,893 candidates 1,691 reported a history of nephrolithiasis, yielding an average prevalence rate of 88.6 per 100,000. During 1980 to 1995...
