It's case study flashback week on NCBI ROFL! All this week we'll be featuring some of our favorite medical case studies from the archives. Enjoy! "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.”
