A 15-year-old female patient was admitted to the urology clinic with nausea, vomiting, and stomach-ache. A 23 x 23 mm opacity was identified in left T-11-12 level in direct urinary graph. Full abdomen ultrasonography was reported to be normal. Later, it was learned that the patient had the habit of eating stone.
