Summary: A rare case of partial perforation of the wall of the bladder by an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) in a puerperal woman and its subsequent laparoscopic removal is described. Cystoscopy revealed an intact bladder mucosa with the IUCD lying submucosally. This case demonstrates that an IUCD embedded in the wall of the bladder, whose mucosa is intact, can be safely removed through a laparoscope without resorting to laparotomy.
