The incidence of foreign body insertion in the anorectum is rare, however, it is increasing, especially in urban populations. Foreign objects in the anorectum can be of different sizes, shapes and materials. Frangible objects like glass or beakers, and sharp foreign bodies that may easily injure the bowel mucosa are particularly dangerous. Physicians have to consider more innovative options on how to extract these foreign bodies without inciting injury; and, if injury would occur, consider different techniques to repair it, whether transanally or transabdominally, and opt for primary repair, or resection with either anastomosis or stoma creation. Here, I introduce our cases with colorectal foreign bodies and present several literatures to help physicians decide when presented with cases like these.
Key Words: Anorectum; Foreign body; Extract
