A 3 yr old boy came with retention of urine and dysuria. On examination bladder was full, supra-pubic region was tender and a stone could be felt at posterior urethra. We planned push back and supra-pubic cystolithotomy. After general anesthesia the stone was pushed back by instillation of lignocaine jelly. Then under cystoscopic view a 5 mm laparoscopic port was inserted into bladder and through this the tiny stone was grasped and brought out. The port was closed by a single stitch. Penile catheter was kept for 5 days. The boy did well postoperatively.
