Hypercalciuria related to cadmium exposure.


A work force has been investigated for possible cadmium intoxication. One group who are coppersmiths have an 18.5 per cent prevalence of upper urinary tract stone disease associated with a statistically highly significant hypercalciuria and reduced serum inorganic phosphate. Proof of exposure to cadmium has been confirmed in all workers. The trace element cadmium should be kept in mind when investigating stone formers who exhibit an unexplained hypercalciuria.
