Patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD), specially with indwelling bladder catheter (iBC), have an increased risk of developing bladder stones, incomplete bladder emptying, recurrent urinary tract infections, sepsis, urethral trauma and bladder cancer. We present the case of a patient with a large bladder stone in iatrogenic NLUTD treated with iBC for about 30 years, who underwent a cystectomy followed by several life-threatening complications, like septic episodes and multiple surgeries. Our case outlines the importance of limiting the time of iBC in favor of CIC to avoid severe complications. Clinicians should instruct on the correct CIC technique and hygiene practices, and monitor patients with periodic abdominal US in order to diagnose and treat precociously any disease, like bladder stones.

Abstract

Patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD), specially with indwelling bladder catheter (iBC), have an increased risk of developing bladder stones, incomplete bladder emptying, recurrent urinary tract infections, sepsis, urethral trauma and bladder cancer. We present the case of a patient with a large bladder stone in iatrogenic NLUTD treated with iBC for about 30 years, who underwent a cystectomy followed by several life-threatening complications, like septic episodes and multiple surgeries. Our case outlines the importance of limiting the time of iBC in favor of CIC to avoid severe complications. Clinicians should instruct on the correct CIC technique and hygiene practices, and monitor patients with periodic abdominal US in order to diagnose and treat precociously any disease, like bladder stones.
