The Copper T intrauterine device (IUDs) are a commonly used method of contraception for women, but have been associated with serious complications such as bleeding, perforation and migration to adjacent organs or omentum. Although perforation of the uterus by an IUD is not uncommon, migration to the sigmoid colon is extremely rare. Here, we report a case of 37-year-old female with an IUD migrating through the uterus into the peritoneal cavity and subsequently invading into the sigmoid colon.

Key words: Intrauterine contraceptive device, migration, sigmoid colon
