Nephrocalcinosis is the precipitation of calcium phosphate crystals in the renal tubules that can result in nephrolithiasis and cause or further provoke an obstructive uropathy. (16) The risk of calcium phosphate precipitation in tissues increases when the calcium phosphate product (phosphate concentration multiplied by the calcium concentration) exceeds 60 [mg.sup.2]/[dL.sup.2], and a product of 70 mg2/dL2 or greater may be an indication for renal replacement therapy.
