General surgeons not so often encounter rectal foreign body; but its incidence is now increasing. Males are the common victim in both child and adult age group. Management can be challenging for the treating surgeon. Diagnosis can be made on clinical grounds and confirmed by radiological investigations. Various approaches have been described in literature but owing its wide spectrum of presentation and heterogeneity of foreign bodies, no single procedure can be considered as the gold standard. We hereby present a case of rectal foreign body in a young male with a history of assault.
