Abstract

Human uterine stone formation is an exceedingly rare condition and to our knowledge only two previous case reports has been published on uterine stones. Uterine calcification occurs in many animal species related to the formation of a protective shell for the developing embryo1 and human endometrial calcification has been rarely associated with some benign and malignant conditions in the form of Psammoma bodies. We present here a rare case of uterine stone in an 8 year old female child.
