Renal colic is an emergent urological problem occurring due to kidney stone disease and characterized by severe pain and is a common cause of admission to emergency departments. Renal colic is one of the most uncomfortable diseases in children due to pain it causes. Also when it leads to blockage in the urinary tract, it may cause permanent renal damage. The main purpose of emergency treatment is to control pain effectively, and resolve urinary obstruction without causing loss of renal function. Treating the potential urinary tract infection is the other goal as well. Pediatric stone disease is different from adults’ in terms of clinical presentation and treatment.
