Bladder was exteriorized through laporotomy incision and multiple cystic caliculi of varying size in neck region were retrieved (Fig.1).
Caliculi retrieved in the present case were smooth, round, numerous and chalky of variable sizes and gross morphology findings indicate, uroliths retrieved were phosphate caliculi and these findings are in accordance with Loretti et al.
The caliculi are radio-opaque and located either in urinary bladder and urethra (Brown et al., 1977).
