Abstract
The most commonly detected foreign body in the abdominal cavity is surgical gauze or sponge, which is followed by intrauterine devices penetrating the uterine cavity. However, to the best of our knowledge, there has been no case report of a foreign body in the abdomen misdiagnosed as an ovarian cyst, in the literature. Thus, we report 1 case of a 41-year-old woman with an umbrella handle in the abdominal cavity, which was misdiagnosed as the ovarian cyst.
Key Words: Foreign body, Ovarian cyst, Umbrella handle
