ABSTRACT
Retained surgical gauze that was left inside the patient during a surgical procedure is called gossypiboma or textiloma. It is a rare complication of surgery commonly seen after abdominal operations. The symptoms of gossypiboma are non-specific, such as pain, palpable mass and fever, which make clinical diagnosis difficult. We present a case of young female athlete patient with right lower quadrant (RLQ) pain for 1 month, caused by surgical gauze which was retained from previous cesarean delivery performed 24 yr ago. Patient with retained surgical gauze can be asymptomatic for a long period. In our case, laparoscopy was used as the diagnostic and therapeutic tool. This report discusses the approach to, and manifestations of gossypiboma which presents a long asymptomatic period.

f2-jer-11-4-236: CT shows irregular calcification suggesting tab-gauze in pelvis.

Mentions: After admission plain abdominal radiography was performed, and irregular calcification suggesting tab-gauze in pelvis was found (Fig. 1). Contrast enhanced abdominal computerized tomography was also revealed that 9 cm sized mass lesion with irregular calcifications was seen at the anterior aspect to the uterus. It was not enhanced at all. It suggested gossypiboma probably tab-gauze (Fig. 2).
