Abstract

We describe a 62-year-old man with a large bladder calculus causing bilateral ureteral obstruction. Diagnosis was delayed despite the patient's history of recurrent urinary infections. This case report illustrates the importance of radiological evaluation of patients presenting with recurrent urinary infections. To our knowledge, only three previous reports of bladder stone causing renal failure have been published.
