Abstract

Intrauterine contraceptive devices have been in use for many years. Although perforation of the uterus by an intrauterine device (IUD) is not uncommon (9.6 per 1000 insertions), intravesical migration with the secondary stone formation is a rare condition. We report a case of a 46-year-old late perimenopausal woman being treated for urinary complaints for six months which on USG turned out to be Copper T encrusted with secondary calculus formation managed successfully by cystoscopic retrieval.
