Abstract

Foreign bodies are rare and challenging issues leading to symptoms according to the location. Laparoscopy is a popular and minimally invasive method used for removal of foreign bodies in the abdominal cavity or retroperitoneum. We herein report  a case with retroperitoneal foreign body that was removed through retroperitoneal single- port laparoscopy using nephroscope. To our knowledge this is the first case of removal of a retroperitoneal foreign body through single- port laparoscopy using nephroscope.
