Question Most common cause of renal stones?

A 28-year-old, previously healthy man suddenly develops severe abdominal pain and begins passing red urine. There are no abnormalities on physical examination. Urinalysis shows a pH of 7; specific gravity 1.015; 1+ hematuria; and no protein, glucose, or ketones. The patient is given a device to use in straining the urine for calculi. The next day, the patient recovers a 0.3-cm stone that is sent for analysis. The chemical composition is found to be calcium oxalate. What underlying condition is most likely to be present?
(A) Gout
(B) Acute cystitis
(C) Diabetes mellitus
(D) Primary hyperparathyroidism
(E) Idiopathic hypercalciuria
