Fever may appear due to known causes such as infections, but may sometimes occur as a result of unknown pathologies. These pathologies can be included in a miscellaneous group of fever of unknown origin. We report one case of bladder stone including a foreign body in a 40-year-old man with a stroke admitted for high fever, blocked miction and bladder symptoms.
