Abstract

A 52-year-old man was presented with discomfort in lower abdomen and irritative voiding symptoms. Computed tomography showed a well circumscribed mass with calcification in front of bladder compressing the bladder diagnosed as leiomyoma with calcifications, probably araising from rectum. Surgery revealed a giant peritoneal loose body measuring 6cm in diameter. After the removal of peritoneal loose body patient was relieved of symptoms. Peritoneal loose bodies are usually small and are found incidentally at surgery. Giant peritoneal loose bodies are rare. A comprehensive review of literature is presented.
