Is There A Relation Between Serum Uric Acid Values and Prostatic Calculi Presence?

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE:We planned to examine the connection between serum uric acid (UA) values and prostatic calculi (PCal) presence and to evaluate the relation between PCal and other etiological factors. METHODS:Patients between 20 and 60 years of age who were referred to the clinic with any reason and had non-contrast abdominal tomography (NCACT) for PCal were included in the study. While the patients were separated into 2 groups based on their serum UA level as ≥7 mg/dL (Group 1) and < 7 mg/dL (Group 2), NCACT was also divided into 2 groups as PCal presence (PCal+) and lack (PCal-) serum UA, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, prostate-specific antigen levels and urinary analysis results of the patients were evaluated and compared. RESULTS:PCal were detected in 38 of 169 patients (22%). PCal presence was detected to be significantly high in Group 1 (p = 0.015). While Type A localization PCal were present both in Groups 1 and 2. Based on PCal presence, UA level was detected to be significantly high in PCal+ patients (p = 0.01). No significant difference was detected among the groups in biochemical parameters and urine-related parameters other than UA. CONCLUSION:A significant relation was found between high UA value and PCal in this study. These results may show that UA plays an active role in PCal etiology.
