  Abstract  
  Introduction: A young male presented with a primary long-standing, non-obstructing large urethral stone. This patient also had an impacted stone at the bladder neck and a lower ureteric stone. Experimental: The patient was evaluated thoroughly and there was no evidence of any neurogenic voiding dysfunction or upper urinary tract damage due to these calculi. Results: This patient was managed by a single stage open surgery leading to complete stone removal. Conclusions: Longstanding stones in the urethra may not be associated with stricture of the urethra. Open surgery proved to be an effective alternative treatment management without any morbidity.
