Abstract

Self-insertion of genitourinary FBs has been documented since the 19th century. The diagnosis is frequently delayed, and consequences can be severe. The possibility of an intravesical FB should be considered in any patient with unexplained lower urinary tract symptoms. Eroticism is one of the more common causes in younger patients but is an infrequent cause of FB insertion in older people. In our patient, the possibilities of psychiatric disease and dementia were entertained but excluded after a psychiatric consultation. In our opinion, the patient inserted the FB for sexual gratification and represents the oldest such patient to be reported.
