Rectal prolapse occurs most commonly in children and middle-aged and elderly women and is relatively rare in young men and is occasionally caused by bladder stones. Severe rectal prolapse, bilateral hydronephrosis, and renal insufficiency caused by bladder stones are rare in a 30-year-old man.
We report the case of a 30-year-old male patient with cerebral palsy who presented with a large bladder stone that resulted in severe rectal prolapse, bilateral hydronephrosis, and renal insufficiency. Following a definitive diag
Rectal prolapse is a rare clinical manifestation of bladder stones, particularly in young adults. Cerebral palsy patients are a vulnerable group in society because of their intellectual disabilities and communicative impairments. Accordingly, besides taking care of their daily diet, abnormal signs in their bodies should receive the doctors’ attention in a timely manner.
Core Tip: Bladder stones are generally observed in elderly males and children but are rarely found in young adults. Similarly, rectal prolapse is extremely rare in young men. Clinically, the most common symptoms of bladder stones are urinary frequency, interrupted urine flow, typically terminal hematuria, dysuria, or suprapubic pain, which are worst at the end of urination. Rectal prolapse is a rare clinical manifestation of bladder stones. We report an unusual case of a young man with cerebral palsy who presented with rectal prolapse and finally confirmed a diagnosis of bladder stone. Patients with cerebral palsy are unable to accurately describe physical discomfort due to intellectual disability and commu
