Iatrogenic foreign body in bladder induced recurrent urinary tract infection: A case report - Abstract

Department of Urology, School of Medicine, Inonu University, Malatya, Turkey.


Urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most common infections in women. Although these infections can be seen in healthy women without any anatomical and functional pathology in etiology, foreign bodies should also be considered. We present a foreign body case due to iatrogenic causes which had recurrent urinary tract infections for 5-6 months and that did not respond to medical treatment.
