Inflammatory bowel disease is a risk factor for low gastrointestinal foreign body impaction, but such cases are very rare. Impaction of a foreign body in the lower gastrointestinal tract can result in perforation, bleeding, abscess formation and fistula. A risk factor for perforation is inflammatory bowel disease, a sharp foreign body and a long-standing foreign body in the gastrointestinal tract. Thus, a foreign body in the lower gastrointestinal tract should be promptly removed by surgery or endoscopy. Most of these cases can currently be managed by endoscopy because of the development of endoscopic devices and the accumulation of experience. Here we report on a case of successful removal of a pork bone from the sigmoid colon in a patient with ulcerative colitis. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2008;37:51-54)
