Massive calculi in the prostatic urethra are even more unusual than calculi in the urethra. The size, form, and location of the calculus, as well as the state of the urethra, all impact the therapeutic method. If the stone is big and obstinate, it can be removed using perineal or suprapubic methods. A case report of a patient who had difficulty in passing urine and burning during micturition is presented. Two calculi were found in the urinary bladder: One was vesical calculus, and the other was vesicourethral (prostatic) dumbbell-shaped calculus, as observed on ultrasonography.
