We report an exceptional case of strangulated small bowel evisceration through an intraperitoneal drainage after open cholecystectomy. It is a recognized but rare complication of surgical procedures. The drainage must be sited carefully and when necessary. If possible, drains of less than 10 mm external diameter should generally be used.
