Forgotten Double J (DJ) ureteric stent with encrustation is a source of morbidity and unrequired admission. It is prevalent due to a lack of patient education and follow-up in third-world countries like Nepal. A case is reported of 30 years gentleman who had underwent right pyelolithotomy for large staghorn calculus and placement of DJ stent after surgery.
