Abstract


A 4-year-old girl was admitted with the complaint of pain in lower abdomen and dysuria. She had exstrophy repair at 6th month of life. Radiographic investigations revealed a large bladder calculus. An innovative treatment in the form of laser lithotripsy was carried out to prevent damaging an already highly compromised urinary bladder with an open surgery.
