FOREIGN BODY IN RECTUM PRESENTING WITH INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION
Digvijay Singh Tanwar and Ravi Verma*
The diverse collection of foreign bodies that have been found in the rectum is hardly less remarkable than the innovative means adopted in their removal. It is difficult to create a vacuum effect when trying to extract the foreign body from the rectum through the anus. Laparotomy is usually necessary when there is difficulty in grasping the foreign body in the rectum. We report a case of an adult male who presented in the emergency department with an incarcerated, large, neglected rectal foreign body, a „stainless steel glass, and causing intestinal obstruction. Emergency laparotomy was required for its removal.
