Case Report

An Unusual Cause of Intestinal Obstruction in an Infant: Phytobezoar

S Doo, TNH Leung, LCL Lan


We reported a case of duodenal obstruction caused by phytobezoar in an 11 months old infant. There was absent history of unusual food ingestion and the definitive diagnosis could only be made intraoperatively as signs of intestinal obstruction evolved. The clinical course was described with a review of literature on this rare condition.
