The act of becoming thick or solid. It was once used synonymously with adhesion or growing together- as, "concreation of the toes." Mostly commonly, it is applied to extraneous and inorganic bodies, of a solid character, met with in different textures, after certain chronic inflammations; or which make their appearance in the joints or in the reservoirs for excrementitial fluids. Concretion is, therefore, frequently synonymous with Calculus, and is then rendered, in Latin, by the word Concrementum. But Concretion has a more extensive signification than Calculus; thus, accidental ossifications or deposits of phosphate of lime in certain organs, and especially in the liver and lungs, are properly called osseus concretions. They could not well be called osseous calculi.

The forms are: urinary, biliary, and the pancreatic. They are found in the gall-bladder and bile ducts, the urinary tract, the pancreatic duct, and, more rarely, in the salivary duct and intestines.
