Abstract: Bladder stones are usually seen among patients with bladder outlet obstruction, especially in men over the age of 50 years. There are several risk factors for bladder stones, including urinary tract infections, abnormal urinary tract system anatomy, and presence of foreign bodies. In addition, migrating intrauterine contraceptive devices through the wall of the urinary bladder and foreign bodies such as surgical sutures may act as a nidus for developing stone formation. Here in, we report a case of bladder stone associated with surgical non-absorbable suture, used for gynecologic surgery 4 years ago, and treated endoscopically. The aim of this paper was to know gynecological association and the management of bladder stones. The patients who had a history of pelvic surgery previously and present with lower urinary tract symptoms such as dysuria, voiding difficulties, weak micturition and hematuria should be evaluated for the foreign body-associated disorders.
