Abstract

Urolithiasis in children is an underrecognized cause of pediatric abdominal pain. Our case describes a child who presented to the emergency department with right lower quadrant pain, in whom a point-of-care ultrasound detected an ureterovesicular stone, which obviated the need for any further radiographic studies. We review the current literature on pediatric urolithiasis with a focus on sonographic diagnosis.
