Intravesical foreign bodies are rarely encountered in the practice of urology; they are the exception rather than the rule. Radiological imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and management as it helps to determine the size, shape, number of foreign bodies as well as the possible complications. Treatment should aim to the removal of the foreign bodies and avoid complications whether by endoscopic or open approaches. Here, we present a case of a female child presented with chronic urinary symptoms found to have intravesical foreign with encrustation.
