Staghorn Culculi: What You Should Know.

Staghorn calculi (kidney stones) get their shape by forming a mold of the cup-like cavities (calyces) in the kidney.

They are named staghorn because when these calculi (kidney stones) form, they look like stag (male deer) horns.

At Kelina Hospital, we removed a large (4.55cm) staghorn calculus from a patient’s kidneys.

Staghorn calculi are commonly caused by recurrent infection. Treat all urinary tract infections thoroughly under the guidance of a Doctor.
