Los cálculos renales se presentan cuando la orina se vuelve demasiado concentrada y las substancias en ella se cristalizan y forman piedritas (los cálculos). Los síntomas se manifiestan cuando los cálculos se trasladan por el uréter y causan un dolor intenso. Los cálculos renales pueden formarse en la pelvis, en los cálices del riñón o en el uréter.
