Objective: to evoluate lie response oí patients under age 15 Vecirs with idiopatic hypercalciurici and non delectable serum paratyroic hormone concentration to sustained oral phosphate solution ingestion. Patients and methods: in six patients fuifilling the above mentioned criterici ciged 8 to 13 years an oral phosphate solution was given along at least three months and a maximun oí nine month period, The main expected end result was a normal urine Co/creatine fraction (UCa/UCr < 0.20) or a daily urine Co output under 4 mg per kg oí body weight. Resuits: mean basa¡ UCa/UCr was 0.356. At the end oí three m'onths under oral phosphcite treatment UCa/UCr was 0. 1 8 in five patients treated for three months (p < 0.003), 0.09 in four patients trected for nine months (p < 0. 001) and 0. 1 2 in four patients followed for three months after the end oí a nine month treatment. Conclusion: oral phosphate theropy may be useful in some patients with idiopatic hypercalciurio and basally
