A man with multiple abdominal calcifications
A 65-year-old man presented with a dull, aching pain in the left lumbar region for three days duration. The pain was aggravated by movement and associated with low grade fever and vomiting. He had a few episodes of passing out sandy particles in his urine, several days prior to admission. He denied any lower urinary tract symptoms or alteration in his bowel habits.
