Singh, Kuldip; Ohri, Ashish; Nain, PS; Matta, H & Sharma, Sandeep
There have been reports of extrusion of ureteric or vesical calculi causing various complications. Extrusion of a urinary calculus is an uncommon complication of urolithiasis. It may occur in cases of ureteral obstruction with spontaneous rupture of proximal dilated ureter and subsequent extrusion of the calculus leading to urinoma formation and sepsis. Here, we are presenting a case with long-standing spontaneous extrusion of a urinary calculus which was lying in the left pararectal region in the hollow of the sacrum.
