Abstract:   (929 Views)
  • The intra-uterine device (Copper T) has been widely used as contraceptive method since 1965. Due to its low cost, effective and reversible nature and long-term benefits, it is widely being used in the developing world. The intra-uterine contraceptive device (IUCD) has been linked to complications like bleeding, perforation and migration to other surrounding organs. The intra-abdomen migration of IUCD is rare but a serious complication. Even in asymptomatic cases, migrated IUCD warrants removal due to its grave complications and medico-legal issues it posses. We reported a rare case of asymptomatic migrated IUCD in a young female who presented to our department with unusual presentation. Both the husband and the subject denied any recollection of indwelling IUCD. The patient was evaluated and diagnosed, and IUCD was removed with right nephrectomy. A brief review in the context is also presented.
