The presence of a foreign body in the bladder is a relatively common finding. However, migration and early spontaneous expulsion of the screw after treatment of the symphysis pubis disjunction is considered rare. We present a report of a 64-year-old man who, after a fall from a height, presented with a disjunction of the pubic symphysis treated with two-plate fixation and presence of screw migration into the bladder and spontaneous expulsion one month after surgery.
