Abstract

Foreign body ingestion is a common occurrence, in which 80% of cases pass through the gastrointestinal tract without complications. However, there may be serious consequences such as perforation, hemorrhage and intestinal obstruction. The case report described demonstrates the diagnostic challenge of foreign body ingestion, due to the enormous range of symptoms that the patient may present, in addition to the importance of early diagnosis and appropriate and individualized therapy to reduce morbidity and mortality in patients.
