estrogen-induced(redirected from estrogen-induced uroliths)
stimulated by high blood levels of estrogen.
a persistent high estrogen intake causes male behavior in ewes and secondary sex characters, e.g. mammary gland and teat hypertrophy, in wethers, and changes in the promotion of development of endometrial-type glands in the cervix.
diets high in estrogens thought to contribute to the development of uroliths by increasing the rate of epithelial desquamation in the urinary tract, thus facilitating the formation of a nidus around which concretion of salts can then develop.
