Urolithiasis remain a problematic nosology in many countries and regions, however, there are studies that bring data on this nosology even in location, size and gender as well. We would like to bring in light our data in respect of gender prevalence of urolithiasis on our population study.

In our prospective study from 2011 to 2014, of 200 subjects who were admitted to emergency service, respectively City Hospital of Mat, where 122 subjects were diagnosed with urolithiasis, and 67 % of those subjects where males, or in other words 82 subjects, and 33 % were female subjects, or in other words 40 subjects. In many studies there are data on gender and age as well in respect to urolithiasis. Our data, even in modest population would like to present and compare with literature and bring to the respective state authorities’ attention for any future prospects.
