Abstract

A 33-year-old female patient was admitted to our clinic with complaints of nausea and vomiting for two days and the inability to tolerate food. The patient had a Nissen fundoplication three years ago. Computed tomography (CT) showed a bezoar image in the distal esophagus. The patient stated that the symptoms began after he ate a persimmon two days ago. The patient underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy. A bezoar was observed in the distal esophagus at the esophagogastric junction. No pathology was observed in the stomach and duodenum. After the bezoar was shredded with a snare and removed with a retrieval snare. Here, we further describe this case of a bezoar that caused ileus in the distal esophagus after a fundoplication operation.
