Fecaloid formation is predominantly related to chronic constipation, which is seen primarily in elderly patients (often bedridden in consequence of dementia, stroke, or orthopedic surgery).
Also prolonged passage from cecum leads to fecaloid material to become more solid and dehydrated resulting in hard stool fecaloma.
In the absence of large perforation sites that cause protrusion of fecaloid material through the abdominal cavity, small millimetric limited perforation sites may induce free simple extraluminal air bubbles and may be sealed with fecaloid material without protruding.
One month after termination of fecaloid leakage, the double J stent was removed and all patients underwent intravenous pyelogram to confirm a curative response.
