Intravesical stone formation on intrauterine contraceptive device.Int Urol Nephrol 2004; 36(3):345-8IU
Since more than 30 years, intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUCD) have been used for a contraceptive opportunity. Although they are termed to be a safe and effective method for contraception, they also have some type of complications and uterine perforation, septic abortion, pelvic abscess are the serious complications of these devices. The incidence of uterine perforation is very low, but in the literature nearly 100 cases were reported about the extra uterine localization of IUCD. Migration may occur to the adjacent organs. We here in describe a case of a 31 year-old woman who had an IUCD with stone formation in the bladder. In the literature all of the cases were reported as IUCD migration, but although it seems technically impossible, IUCD placement into the bladder should also be considered in misplaced IUCDs.
