Foreign bodies in the liver, although rare, have been described previously in the literature. While more common in children, adults may also swallow foreign bodies that can reach the liver by penetrating the stomach, duodenum or colon.We describe the case of a young lady who accidentally swallowed a needle, which was later found in the liver by abdominal X-ray and computed tomography (CT). It was removed intact by laparoscopy. A foreign body in the liver is a rare occurrence. Radiology is important in diagnosis through modalities including plain X-ray, ultrasonography and abdominal CT. Removal can be achieved by laparotomy or laparoscopy.
