Dr Sanjay Kumar [7] | Dr Robin [5] | Dr Mohan [5] | Dr Anupam Jhobta [2]


Abstract: Gossypiboma is an uncommon surgical complication, is a mass lesion due to a retained surgical sponge surrounded by foreign-body reaction. Gossypibomas are most frequently discovered in the abdomen. Such foreign bodies can often mimic tumors or abscesses clinically or radiologically; however, they are rarely reported because of the medicolegal implications. A 37-year-old lady presented with pain abdomen and vomitting five months after caesarean section. Retained foreign body was diagnosed radiologically and confirmed with operation. Retained foreign body should be in the differential diagnosis of any postoperative patient who presents with pain, infection, or palpable mass.
