Bladder stones and phleboliths

  • This is a very large bladder stone.
  • The small foci of calcification seen on both sides of the stone are phleboliths, which are calcified foci within veins.
  • Phleboliths can be confused with ureteric stones at the vesicoureteric junction (VUJ). This patient did not have features of ureteric obstruction, making VUJ stones very unlikely.
