[A rare etiology of abdominal calcifications: lithopedion].


We report a case of a rare and particular cause of abdominal calcifications represented by the lithopedion. We describe different radiologic appearances observed by: abdominal plain film, echography and CT. It appeared to us that abdominal plain film alone is sufficient for diagnosis and undertaking surgery. Echography and CT are helpful, especially for complementary evaluation.
