Abstract

Lower urinary tract foreign bodies have been reported in both children and adults. It is helpful for urologists to review foreign body case reports to become familiar with alternative approaches for removal that may prove helpful during challenging cases. To our knowledge, we describe for the first time a degraded rare-earth magnet within the body and use of Hartmann ear forceps to remove a foreign body from the urethra under cystoscopic guidance through a limited urethrotomy.
