Poster summary

The urachus closes naturally after birth. Its opening leads to anomalies in which secondary complications may be formed, including urachus calculi. This disease is often discovered incidentally in radiographic examinations and is rare in adults. The purpose of this study is to present a rare case of urachus calculus in an adult, located precisely in the anterior wall of the bladder, at the junction of the bladder and urachus. Our case was a 38-year-old man with complaints of abdominal pain. The CT scan images showed a calculus attached to the anterior and inner wall of the bladder, in the insertion of the urachus to the bladder. Cystoscopy showed calculus is connected to the urachus duct without any mass/tumor. The collection of evidence suggests calcified urachus. The patient was discharged with conservative treatment and a mild analgesic.
