Bladder Stones “BS” can be formed for many reasons; one of them is being secondary to a foreign body. Reporting and publishing issues about stones formed around different kinds of foreign bodies in the bladder are increasing. We present a case of an unusual giant urinary BS formed around foreign body (pin) in a 14-year girl. The entrance mechanism was unknown as informed by the patient and her parents. Based on the chronic symptoms of lower urinary tract described by the patient, urinalysis and ultrasonography were requested in addition to kidney, ureter and bladder plain X-ray “KUB”. Then diagnosis of giant BS with pin inside was established. The stone and the attached pin were removed through open surgery without complications. Still foreign body acting as nidus for giant vesical stone is an expected scenario. Knowing mechanism of entrance is important in preventing occurrence, however, this mechanism remains obscured in some patients, so this necessitates more search concentrating on identifying the motive for insertion, conditions and events that leads to entrance of different foreign bodies in urinary bladder in order to minimize the rate of occurrence of such condition.
