Vesical stone formation is very rare in posttransplant recipients. We describe a patient who developed hanging vesical stone more than 10 years after receiving a transplant near the ureteroneocystostomy site on polypropylene suture, treated by cystolithotripsy using the removal of suture material with cystoscopic scissors. The use of nonabsorbable suture leads to very late formation of stones over it. Hence, it should be avoided.
