Urinary tract stones, which often are referred to as "kidney stones," are small, hard stones that can form in the kidneys, ureter, bladder, or urethra. These stones are relatively common in adults but are rare in children. When they occur in children, they may be caused by an underlying metabolic problem or an anatomical abnormality (such as a reconstructed urinary tract or a surgically augmented bladder.)
