Abstract:   (3597 Views)
Foreign bodies in the bladder are uncommon. Because of limiting diameter of urethra, stuffing and packing drugs into the bladder is even rarer. We introduce a case of self-insertion of drugs into urethra and further into the bladder which stayed there for 2 years due to fear of arrestment during interrogation. Surgical removal of foreign body and stones formed on it was carried out. This confirms that small amounts of drugs can be inserted in the urethra to escape prosecution; this can be of rare differential diagnoses for physicians and a noteworthy incident for law enforcement.
