A 75-year-old woman who had undergone pancreatoduodenectomy 19 years earlier was referred to us for investigation of progressive abdominal pain without conclusive preliminary complementary tests. Computed tomography enabled us to identify that the transanastomotic pancreatic stent had migrated distally, resulting in bowel perforation. She underwent surgery and the foreign body was removed.
