Doctors were left in shock after opening the stomach of a 43 years-old woman suffering psychic disorders, abdominal pain and vomiting for 10 days with a history of foreign body ingestion only to find nails, pens, spoon, woods, hair, metal chain and tooth brush.
According to Meddy Bear who shared the photos, the rare condition is called “Metalbezoar”.
Metal Bezoars are conglomerates of undigested organic matter, which forms a mass in the gastrointestinal tract. This report describes a patient who developed a gastric bezoar from ingesting a large number of metal objects in order to “treat” his pulmonary tuberculosis.
According to the report, when doctors opened the woman’s stomach, they discovered “nails, pens, spoon, woods, hair, metal chain and tooth brush” from the stomach. The woman was operated and finally set free medically.
