A disease occasioned by small concretions, similar to sand or gravel, Glarea, (F.) Gravier, which from in the kidneys, pass along the ureters to the bladder, and are expelled with the urine. These concretions, which are commonly composed of uric acid and an animal matter, are deposited at the bottom of the vessel, immediately after the excretion of the urine; and, by their hardness and resistance under the finger, differ considerably from the ordinary sediment of that liquid. A vegetable diet and alkaline drinks are the best prophylactics. See Calculi, urinary. A fit of the Gravel, is the excruciating suffering induced by the passage of gravel from the kidney to the bladder. It can only be relieved by anaesthetics, opiates, the warm bath, &c. When the deposit is in fine particles, it is termed Sand, Arena, Arenula, Psamma, Psammus.
