Bladder stone, Struvite, Urologic abnormality


This is the presentation of a 19-month-old female admitted for recurrent lower urinary tract infection. Renal ultrasound and computed tomography showed a round bladder stone with no associated abnormality. Open cystolithotomy was performed, and a large bladder stone, measured 3.2 x 2 x 3.2 cm, and composed of magnesium ammonium phosphate (struvite) was removed. To the best of our research, this is the youngest patient, involved with a large struvite bladder stone.
