The presence of a foreign body in the genitourinary tract represents a urologic challenge that often requires prompt intervention. We describe an endoscopic approach that was used for removal of a foreign body located in the prostatic urethra of a schizophrenic man. A nitinol stone basket was used as an effective means for extraction of a large metal screw from the urethra of this patient.
