Migrated Urethral Stent-Rare Case Report
This patient 70 years-old, could not provide any information except that he was operated in the bladder 7 years ago. He was referred for CT from the urologist because he felt some hardness in the perineum. A percutaneous catheter was used for urination. We found diastasis of the pubic symphysis with sclerotic edges. A metallic apparatus is seen into the symphysis. We speculate that urethral stent migrated into the symphysis. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
