FOREIGN BODIES IN THE STOMACH & INTESTINE
We read with interest the paper of Oliver Richard Waters, Tawfique Daneshmend, and Tarek Shirazi on "An incidental finding of a gastric foreign body 25 years after ingestion".
It is quite interesting as well as surprising. We feel it may be the longest period that a pen sat idle and was detected so late.
In addition, the pen was still OK !!!!
We have an interesting case of FB in stomach and GI tract who had consumed 99 Nails !!!
We were searching the net for FB in the Stomach and came across this rare case report by Richard Waters et al. It encourages us to submit our article too.
