Kidneys are a couple of bean-like organs that are present in vertebrates. When blood is passed through kidney, it filters wastes, unnecessary water and chemicals out of the blood. Kidneys extract the by-products of the blood and generate urine. Kidneys control the level of fluids, salts, minerals, and other materials in the organisms. The kidneys can form kidney stones as the balance of such substances alters. Pakistan has probably the most significant incidence of kidney stones. The main aim of current research was to evaluate the components of kidney stones. The FTIR technique was employed for the evaluation of the components of kidney stones. Fifty five (55) kidney calculi samples were collected and examined. From these 55 examined kidney stones samples, 31(56.4%) were calcium oxalate, 11(20%) calcium phosphate, 08(14.5%) uric acid, 03(5.5%) struvite and 02(3.6%) cysteine stones. The kidney stone disease was most frequently observed 31(56.4%) in the age group 26-45 years. The male to female ratio was found as 4:1 (M:F) ratio.
