Author(s):Shahid Rasool, Sofia Hanif and Zakriya Rashid

Chronic diarrhea is a very common disease which affects the quality of life of our patients. It is one of the major diseases for which patients are referred to gastrointestinal clinics. Irritable bowel syndrome, infectious diarrhea and abdominal tuberculosis due to unhygienic conditions in our part of the world and inflammatory bowel disease are the major causes of chronic diarrhea in young patients. We are reporting a young female patient who presented with chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain and bleeding per rectum mimicking ulcerative colitis for last many months but on colonoscopy examination an impacted foreign body was found in the sigmoid colon which was the culprit. Surgical retrieval of the foreign body resolved the symptoms.
