Phytobezoars are the most common bezoars composed of non-digestible food materials, such as fiber, seeds, skin of fruits. The predisposing factors of bezoars are altered gastrointestinal motility and anatomy. It is uncommon for bezoars occurring in patient with normal gastric anatomy to cause impaction on the duodenal bulb. We experienced a phytobezoar at the duodenal bulb causing gastric outlet obstruction in a patient who had no predisposing factors. The patient was treated by endoscopic removal.
Key Words: Phytobezoar; Duodenum; Obstruction; Endoscopic treatment
