ABSTRACT

Objectives: To review the few published cases of prostatic calculi, a rare condition in children, and to report three further cases.

Results: Four cases were recorded previously but no association was stated between the presence of calculi and cranial-bone abnormality.

Conclusions: Prostatic calculi in childhood are rare; the condition requires further study and clarification.

Mentions: The family was asked to bring his 6-year-old brother (Fig. 6), the only male sibling, and he was asymptomatic. His plain film showed prostatic calcification. Both brothers had full haematological and biochemical investigations, and none showed any abnormality (Table 2). The IVU and cysto-urethroscopy were normal. The patient and his brother were lost to follow-up.
