Calculi occurring around double J (DJ) stents is a rare occurrence. Our case was of a 12-year-old female who was operated for ureteric re-implantation of both moieties in a case of left sided double moiety with Grade IV VUR. Two DJ stents were kept in situ and patient was lost to follow-up. The stents and resultant calculi came into notice when she came with abdominal pain and dysuria. They were removed by pyelolithotomy with suprapubic cystolithotomy.
