CASE REPORT: RETRIEVAL OF AN INTRA-UTERINE CONTRACEPTIVE DEVICE PENETRATING THROUGH THE WALL OF THE RECTUM.
Ann Ib Postgrad Med 2018; 16(2):174-176AI

Abstract

A Copper T intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) is a commonly employed method of reversible contraception for women. Its use has been associated with complications such as bleeding, perforation and migration to adjacent organs or peritoneum. Uterine wall erosion and subsequent perforation by an IUCD is not unusual; however the subsequent intraperitoneal migration, to and perforation of the rectum is uncommon. We present a case of 31-year-old female with an IUCD migrating through the uterus possibly into the peritoneal cavity and subsequently eroding into the posterior rectal wall. It was removed easily without complications through the rectum during an examination under anesthesia.
