Renal calculi illness is also referred to as urolithiasis or nephrolithiasis. Urolithiasis has become the third most frequent medical disorder globally. Pakistan has probably the most significant incidence of kidney stones. The detection of stone components is most important, since it gives the data which may be helpful to health professionals in finding the main cause of renal calculi and deciding whether they should be treated in a therapeutic or surgical manner. The purpose of present work was to assess the constitutes of renal calculi removed via laparoscopic surgery from the affected persons in the Peoples University of Medical & Health Sciences for Women, Shaheed Benazir Abad, Nawab Shah, Sindh, Pakistan. The renal stones were assessed by FT-IR for their constitutional study. Out of 60 investigated specimen of renal calculi, 32/60 (53.3%) were calcium oxalate, 12/60 (20%) were calcium phosphate, 09/60 (15%) were uric acid calculi, 04/60 (6.7%) were struvite and cysteine calculi were 03/60 (5%). The current study showed that the calcium oxalate calculi were the most prevalent (53.3%) while the cysteine calculi were the lowermost prevalent (5%) among the all collected and examined calculi.
