Preferred Abstract (Original): 

The vesical stone formation due to intravesical mesh erosion of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) is rare. In this report, a case of 48-year-old patient who underwent (TVT) elsewhere is discussed. The patient was presented with vesical stone and persistent stress urinary incontinence. Intravesical stone was detected by non-contrast computed tomography and cystourethroscopy. Stone fragmentation was done by pneumatic lithotripsy and transurethral resection of the mesh was performed. The postoperative control cystoscopy demonstrated complete healing of bladder mucosa.
