Vesical calculi are common in urological practice. However, encountering a giant vesical calculus weighing more than 100 g is rather rare. We report a patient who presented with mild symptoms and was found to have a single giant vesical calculus weighing about 1334 g. Lack of access to basic medical facilities and milder symptoms may be the predisposing factors in this patient for a calculus to enlarge into such abnormal weight.
