Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 57-year-old man with chronic HIV infection, who reported an eight-month history of passing stones and a chalky white discharge from his urethra. His medical examinations detected ritonavir in trace amounts, though his metabolic evaluation for causes of urolithiasis showed normal serum calcium, magnesium and phosphate measurements. It highlights the cause of urolithiasis instead of management of an acute episode of urinary colic.
