Bladder calculi account for 5% of all urinary system calculi.(1) They are usually seen in older men and occur because of infravesical obstructions such as prostate hyperplasia, neurogenic bladder, urinary tract infection (UTI), foreign bodies, but anti-incontinence surgery in woman and rarely pregnancy can also be predisposing factors for bladder calculus.(2,3) Bladder stones could also be seen in patients who had undergone radical cystectomy for invasive bladder cancer with neo-bladder reconstruction.(4) Bladder stones may cause unilateral or bilateral hydronephrosis.(5) In this case report we present a 50 years old man who had giant bladder stone.
