Abstract


ABSTRACT
The authors present two cases of ureteral stones in two male babies aged 3 years and 18 months respectively.
The expulsion of these stones did not subside the symptomatology, than an attentive clerking was done and revealed a recurrent symptomatology which associated nonspecific digestive and génito urinary signs and a right iliac fossa pain which was present on physical examination.
All of these signs were ameliorated after appendectomy and none of these children presented with any calculi pathology.
Histology carried out on the appendices revealed signs of appendicitis
The discussion now brings out an etiological link between the appendicitis and the stones that were observed with the associated signs and symptoms.

RÉSUMÉ
Les auteurs présentent deux cas d’empierrement urétral inaugural chez des nourrissons mâles respectivement âgés de 3 ans et de 18 mois. L’expulsion des calculs n’ayant pas ramené le calme, un interrogatoire attentif décela chez l’un et l’autre une symptomatologie récurrente associant des signes digestifs et génito-urinaires non spécifiques, et l’examen physique une douleur de la fosse iliaque droite. Tout ce cortège s’amenda après appendicectomie. Aucun des deux enfants ne présentait une maladie générale lithogène. L’anatomopathologie des pièces opératoires identifia des lésions d’appendicite.
La discussion débouche sur un lien de causalité entre l’appendicite, les calculs observés, et la symptomatologie accompagnatrice.
