Study on Outlander of the Bladder: The Hidden Copper IUD
For several years, intrauterine contraceptive devices have been in use. While IUD perforation of the uterus is not unusual (9.6 per 1000 insertions), intravesical migration is a rare condition with secondary stone formation [1,2]. We record a case of a 46-year-old late perimenopausal woman being treated for six months for urinary symptoms that turned out to be Copper T encrusted with secondary calculus formation successfully controlled by cystoscopic recovery on USG. Daily monitoring of IUDs for identifiable threads will help to identify misplaced IUDs earlier and to avoid problems such as intravesical migration. In developing countries, proper training of paramedical workers is mandatory to provide secure and better family planning services. Bladder calculi should always be elicited with IUD insertion history as their origin in denovo is a rareity in females.
