Caption: Large kidney stones located in the renal calyces. They are probably calcium (oxalate or phosphate) stones. Kidney stones may cause severe pain. A small stone may be passed spontaneously. A large stone may block the flow of urine and is removed surgically or by using sound waves, applied externally, which break it up. The mucosa of the renal pelvis show a blue colour due to congestion.
