Abstract
Implanon, a single-rod subdermal contraceptive implant is usually located around the insertion site, Implanon has been usually known to migrate within less than 2 cm of the insertion site and the true migration over 2 cm has been rarely reported. We found a patient whose implanon was located near the brachial neurovascular bundle of left axillary fossa which is about 15 cm upward from the insertion site. We removed it successfully without complication and report the case with literature review.
