Exploratory laparotomy is considered as the conventional management procedure for acute abdominal issues. It can cause paralytic ileus and may lead to abdominal wall dehiscence. Few cases of lump ingestion have been reported in scientific literature. Here we report removal of a foreign body (an electric lamp) from patient abdomen who developed perforated Viscous following exploratory laparotomy. The patient was admitted with abdominal pain and constipation and later diagnosed with Foreign Body (FB) ingestion by computed tomography C.T. scan of the abdomen and pelvis. The patient underwent FB sigmoid removal and closure was done.
