The patient is a 90-year-old woman with a history of chronic constipation. She described abdominal pain that had been progressing for one week with associated overflow diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Lab work showed deterioration of renal function with a creatinine level of 3.23mg/dL. CT scan revealed a large fecaloma that occupied the rectal ampulla, sigmoid and descending colon, which extended to the epigastrium and had a maximum craniocaudal length of 35cm, lateral diameter of 12.7cm and anteroposterior of 14.8cm. The fecaloma was compressing the right pelvic ureter, causing uretero-pyelocaliceal dilation and changes associated with obstructive uropathy and hydronephrosis (Fig. 1).

(0.16MB).

We extracted the fecaloma manually under sedation, after which creatinine levels and intestinal transit normalized progressively.
