Forgetting an abdominal foreign body stays an universal fear of surgeons. Authors describe a case of textiloma, delivered by the anus through a sigmoidal fistula, five months after a caesarean intervention. The consultation’s reason was an occlusive syndrome. The textiloma was extracted under laparotomy and the further surgical was simple. Authors will discuss the physiopathological and diagnostic features throughout the literature.
