Metabolic syndrome and nephrolithiasis are quite common disorders presenting similar epidemiological characteristics. Belonging to genetic, environmental and hormonal interaction, they have high incidence and prevalence in the adult population of industrialised countries and are characterised by a high level of morbidity and mortality if not adequately identified and treated. Despite metabolic syndrome is considered a fundamental risk factor for chronic kidney diseases, is not actually known whether it is associated with nephrolithiasis beyond the effect of its individual components, in particular obesity, glucose intolerance, and hypertension. In this paper, the possible pathogenetic links between metabolic syndrome and nephrolithiasis will be presented and discussed.
