A rare entity of acute renal failure: retained foleyAuthor(s): Asma Jamil, Rajesh Gulati and Ayesha Jamil
Retained foreign bodies in the urinary bladder are not uncommon. They can present in the form of irritative or obstructive symptoms. In literature, a variety of retained foreign bodies have been described. Methods of introduction can be an iatrogenic, accidental, postoperative complication, or migration from perivesicular vicinity. We described a severe presentation of a case where a retained foley ended up in the formation of large calculous formation. Our patient presented with acute renal failure resulting in irreversible kidney injury. Open cystostomy was done to remove the stone and retained foley and the patient was discharged with permanent dialysis arrangement.
