Background: Sigmoid diverticulitis is a common abdominal disease that may require emergency treatment. The prognosis depends on the potentially dangerous complications, in particular pylephlebitis and hepatic abscess.

The patient was treated by endoscopic extraction of the foreign body, antibiotic therapy and anticoagulation. Evolution was favorable.
