This Clinical Presentation Patient data: D.S female, 40 years old, 11 months after C-section, presents with a palpable mass in the right hypochondrium, with no specific symptoms. Imagines Finding On ultrasound examination, is found a round lesion, with heterogenous (hyperechoic and anechoic) content, thick walled, with marked posterior shadowing. The patient underwent contrast enhanced MRI; in the right mesogastric region is noted a thick-walled cystic formation with numerous linear structures within, measured up to 122x110x80 mm. Discussion The diagnosis of gossypiboma is a challeng because it can resemble a benign or malignant tumour. The imaging features of Gossypibomas are also not very specific. The correct diagnosis may require multimodality approach and correlation with history. Conclusion Retained foreign body (RFB) should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of any postoperative patient who presents with pain, infection, or palpable mass or with unusual symptoms.
