Idiopathic hypercalciuria is a common disorder in children and can present with a range of clinical presentations such as hematuria, voiding dysfunction, flank pain, abdominal pain, nephrolithiasis, urinary tract infection and decreased bone mineral density. In the review below we provide a brief overview of calcium metabolism, types and clinical consequences of hypercalciuria and a brief approach to evaluation and management of hypercalciuria.
