Gossypiboma is a mass formed around cotton material acting as foreign body in visceral cavity. In our study, we present a case of gossypiboma following open cholecystectomy. A surgical sponge left in the peritoneal cavity following cholecystectomy, caused inflammatory reaction, perforation and intraluminal migration. It is a relatively rare presentation. This patient underwent emergency laparotomy with Billroth II anastomosis and sponge removal.
