Kidney stone in 3-year-old boy

My 3-year-old son has been diagnosed of kidney stone.  He also has painful and swollen knee joint and recurrent infection of glan penis.  On his blood test he was found to have increased level of serum uric acid.  There is no family history of such.  I am wondering what might have caused it and once treated can it recur?

Hello,

I am so sorry to hear that your 3-yr-old son is in pain.

It seems to be that he is suffering from hyperuricemia and all these seem to me as the manifestations of the same. I am not sure of the recurrent infection of the glans (glands) penis though.

I am not aware of the medications he is on as of now. I would strongly suggest you to make him see a physician or a hematologist to find out the cause of his high uric acid levels.

The following link might be useful to you.

Keep me in loop.

Regards.
