Kidney stones occur fairly commonly in the general population with some genetic tendencies within families. Examination of general health and kidney status and of a stone for calcium, urate, or atazanavir is recommended (Reyataz or atazanavir can cause kidney stones is small % of patients). In my experience I have seen 2 patients develop stones likely due to atazanavir (out of many hundreds on the drug)which did not recur when atazanavir was switched to an alternative drug. KH
