Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Name this crystal

    • A.

      Calcium Oxalate Dihydrate

    • B.

      Calcium Oxalate Monohydrate

    • C.

      Triple Phosphate

    • D.

      Uric Acid

    Correct Answer
    A. Calcium Oxalate Dihydrate
    Explanation
    Calcium oxalate dihydrate is the correct answer because it is a crystal composed of calcium, oxalate, and water molecules. The term "dihydrate" indicates that there are two water molecules associated with each calcium oxalate unit. This crystal is commonly found in the urine and can contribute to the formation of kidney stones. Calcium oxalate monohydrate is similar but contains only one water molecule. Triple phosphate and uric acid are different types of crystals and not the correct answer in this case.

    Explanation
    Triple Phosphate is the correct answer because it is a type of crystal that can form in the urine. It is also known as struvite and is composed of magnesium, ammonium, and phosphate. Triple Phosphate crystals are commonly associated with urinary tract infections caused by certain bacteria. These crystals can sometimes be seen under a microscope in urine samples and their presence can indicate the presence of an infection.
