Crohn’s disease is a complex chronic inflammatory disease of the digestive tract. Crohn’s disease presents with extraintestinal complications, such as nephrolithiasis.

This article provides a brief review of prevalence, risk factors, pathophysiology, presentation, and management of nephrolithiasis in Crohn’s disease patients. In addition, it explains the preventative measures that can be taken to reduce the incidence of nephrolithiasis in Crohn’s disease patients.
