Background: Occuring foreign bodies inside urinary bladder are a relatively rare condition. Generally, introduction of foreign bodies into the bladder may be iatrogenic, a result of penetrating trauma, self-insertion or migration from adjacent organs.

Case presentation: A 10 year-old boy presented to the imaging center with a 3 months history of dysuria, increased frequency. Abdominal X-Ray (KUB) demonstrated a semiopaque serpiginons material in the pelvis area. Intravenous urography and ultrasound revealed normal shape and size of both kidneys. Bladder sonography showed an echogenic tortuous glomerule object floating in the vesica.

Conclusion: Foreign bodies in the bladder are uncommon. Detection of intravesical foreign bodies should be included in the differential diagnosis of patients with chronic lower urinary tract problems. Radiological evaluation is necessary to determine the location, exact size, number, and nature of them.
