NCBI ROFL: Rectal salami.

By ncbi rofl | July 28, 2009 4:12 pm

“We present the case of a 63-year-old man who had inserted a salami into his anal canal for sexual stimulation–the commonest reason for inserting foreign bodies–and who subsequently required a laparotomy for its removal. This common surgical problem requires a thorough medical history, an examination and the use of radiographs for management. Current techniques for removal of such objects are discussed.”

Thanks to Emma for today’s ROFL!

    Looking at the screenshot I, at first, read the journal name as Int J Clin *Proct*.
    Which would have made sense, I guess…

    I guess the guy should be lucky it wasn't a Peperoni salami…
