Foreign body ingestion is not uncommon in pediatric age group. Foreign bodies including coin retention/impaction at the colorectal regions are less frequently reported in children and extremely rare in the operated cases of anorectal malformation (ARM). The present case is a 5.8-year-old boy who had retention of ingested foreign body (coin) in his rectum for 4 months. His history revealed that he was a case of high ARM which was managed with three-staged procedures. His clinical examination and radiological investigations revealed an anal stricture and a foreign body (coin) in his rectum. He was managed well with anal dilatation and removal of coin under general anesthesia. The intention for presenting the case is its rarity.
