Giant vesical calculus

  • H.H. Laubscher


An exceptional case of bladder stone is presented. The case is unusual as regards the size of the stone and the fact that the patient did··not seek medical assistance much earlier, as this was readily available. Furthermore, recovery after removal of the stone was remarkably quick, as evidenced by the clinical picture as well as the blood and urine biochemical values. The fact that the patient did not return for follow-up seems to confirm that cure was complete. The pathogenesis of the stone remains unknown.
