A 68 year old female housewife working occasionally in her own garden, sustained abdominal pain, discomfort and sometimes passing gaseous. Her complaints started 25 years ago. She has been seen by many physicians in her hometown Kermanshah and Karand and having medical treatments almost with no effects. The pain continued on and off until became worse. She came to Tehran and had an abdominal X-Ray. Three opaque shadows were found in her abdomen. She was referred to Sina hospital. A barium enema revealed 3 large egg-shaped opacities inside her transverse colon with marked dilatation of the proximal part. Some intracolonic foreign bodies were suspected. On operation, the transverse colon between hepatic and splenic flexures was markedly dilated with stricture at the splenic site. Three large ovaloid stoney masses weighting together 117 grams were found in this part of the lumen. The wall of the colon was fibrotic. No other abnormality was seen. The wall of transverse colon was resected and end-to-end anastomosis made. She left the hospital with no complications or complaints.
