Abstract

Textiloma is an inflammatory mass containing surgical sponges that are unintentionally left behind in a surgical wound. This complication has been most commonly described by abdominal and gynecologic surgeons. However, the occurrence of textiloma after intracranial procedures especially under the temporalis muscle has not been documented. The author reports a rare case of textiloma of the pterion in a patient who presented with a subcutaneous tumor developed eight years after frontotemporal craniotomy for aneurysm clipping.
