The physical examination revealed nothing. OGD showed a foreign body material that completely obstructing the pylorus. Therefore, a laparotomy was performed. A surgical compress was removed at enterotomy and the final diagnosis was gossypiboma. Here, we present a case of transgastric gossypiboma after a splenectomy 4 years previously|
