Abstract

Gossypibomas are an unusual postoperative complication and are reluctantly reported in the literature. In the past, the patient would require a laparotomy. More recently, they have been treated laparoscopically and percutaneously by interventional radiology. This is the first case report of a gossypiboma treated with colonoscopy. This may represent an addition treatment option for this complication.
