We present the first reported case of a patient with a forgotten ureteral stent. A 68-year-old woman had undergone radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer in 1997, at which time bilateral ureteral stents were placed. She was admitted to our hospital with stranguria, dysuria, and lower back pain of 10 days duration. Preoperative radiologic evaluation revealed the presence of ureteral stents, which had been in place since 1997. With the patient under general anesthesia, the bilateral stents were removed by urethral cystoscopy. No stone formation was noted. The procedure was easy and fast, and no intraoperative complications occurred.
