Correspondence Address:

We present two cases of breakage of pediatric cystoscopy sheath, one leading to retention of the broken piece in the patient«SQ»s bladder and the other occurring just before commencement of the procedure. The first child required a suprapubic retrieval of the foreign body leading to increased morbidity and hospital stay. This is a rare occurrence, which has not been previously reported in pediatric surgical literature. We present these two cases with an aim to increase awareness among pediatric urologists regarding such an occurrence.
