Anastomotic stenosis and fistula after laparoscopic sigmoidectomy are a subject of interest in the literature. Most series reporting results on these complications are heterogeneous. In addition, the selection of patients for treatment vary considerably. The objective of this film is to show a complication, although exceptional, three months after a laparoscopic sigmoidectomy; this complication is a peri-anastomotic stenosis combined with potential rupture of the anastomosis, fistula and peri-anastomotic abscess.
