  • Look Inside

 A 80-year-old female with a urethral calculus who had neurogenic bladder due to cerebrovascular disease is presented. A plain X-ray of the pelvis demonstrated a large calculus at the urethra. The pelvic and vaginal examinations demonstrated a large calculus impacted at the external urethral meatus. The stone could neither be pushed up into the urinary bladder or through the meatus with forceps. A urethral calculus was discharged suddenly though an operation scheduled after the whole body condition improved. Gross examination of the stone revealed that calculus weighting 119g,and measuring 66×47×43mm. The stone was composed of calcium phosphate,calcium carbonate,and magnesium ammonium phosphate.
