Endoscopic placement of stents tends to become a routine for the treatment of various esophageal diseases, since it is a trustworthy and non-invasive technique. However there can be complications, which are divided into immediate and delayed. In this article we report a rare case of an 80-year-old man with acute abdomen, caused by obstruction of the terminal ileum due to the migration of an esophageal stent. Enterectomy was performed with end-to-end anastomosis of the small and large intestine. Postoperative period was uneventful.
