Multiple bezoars causing small bowel obstruction: a unique case of resolution with upper and low GI endoscopy

491-492

Mariana Brito, Irina Mocanu, Ana Nunes, Jorge Fonseca,

Reports of obstructing foreign bodies in the small bowel are rare and the majority describe surgical resolution. We report a case of successful endoscopic treatment of a small bowel obstruction (SBO) caused by multiple bezoars. A 92-year-old female presented to the Emergency Department with a history of persistent vomiting. Computed tomography (CT) showed gastric distension and an intraluminal ovaloid foreign body with a heterogenous density in the second portion of the duodenum, suggestive of bezoar.
