Abstract: Pyometra is a rare condition characterized by collection of pus inside uterine cavity. It is mainly associated with postmenopausal age group. Majority of the cases are associated with malignancy of genital tract or as a consequence of radiotherapy for cancer treatment. Foreign bodies in vagina like forgotten vaginal pessaries or in uterine cavity like intrauterine contraceptive device and retained fetal bones are a rare cause of pyometra. Even rare, is pyometra caused by cereal grains like wheat husk. We are reporting an unusual case of pyometra caused due to presence of wheat husk as a foreign body in uterine cavity.
