Aim and Objective: Urinary stone occurance is predicted as 3% in all individuals and it affect up to 12% of the population during their lifetime. Urinary stone forms with standard range of 50% at 10 years of age and male has the highest proportion. Due to various etiological and risk factors it became a great burden socially and economically. So it is relevant to conduct a study on risk factors and prevalence associated with urolithiasis. Materials and Methods: A total of 110 patients were followed over a period of 9 months, and the prevalence and risk factors was studied. Data was collected with a self –administered questionnaire. Results: The prevalence of stones have markedly increased over the past 30 years and is of great concern in aging population. Out of 110 patients we found that 54.5% were females, 65% were in between the age 45-65 years, 39.9% stones are between 9-12mm, 39.09% of stone prevalence was at climate 84-86 °F, 72% were smokers, 35.45% were hypertensive patients, 55.45% had improper fluid intake and 21.8%. Conclusion: The relationship betweenthe risk factors and prevalence had been established.The data shows the risk factors has a higher impact in formation of urolithiasis, The prevelance of urolithiasis was increased in higher temperature as a result of imbalance between input and output of fluids.
