Idiopathic hypercalciuria (IH) has been speculated to have a predisposing role in the development of urinary tract infection (UTI), due to the uroepithelial cell damage it leads to. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of hypercalciuria on the bladder, ureters, and kidneys in rats with experimentally induced hypercalciuria.
