Abstract

Our case was a 30-year-old patient who had recently given birth via Caesarean Section two months before reporting to our
hospital with pain abdomen as the chief complaint; her systemic examination, less abdominal tenderness and tachycardia, was
unremarkable with only slightly raised TLC. The Diagnosis of Gossypiboma was made after a CT scan and laparotomy were
done to remove the Gossypiboma with the surrounding fluid sent for culture and sensitivity test. She was kept post-operative
on antibiotics and discharged after uneventful recovery.
