Species-specific description: Urolithiasis may be defined as "the occurrence of familial, congenital, or acquired pathophysiologic factors that, in combination, progressively increase the risk of precipitation of excretory metabolites in urine to form stones (i.e., uroliths)" (Osborne et al., 2009).
