Abstract:

Bezoars are masses formed from mixed substances in the gastrointestinal system and account for fifth most frequent cause of Small Bowel Obstructions (SBO). Phytobezoar is the most common bezoar, which is a concretion of undigestible fibers from ingested vegetables and fruits. Chronic radiation enteritis can occur even after decades of exposure. We report a case of woman, who presented with recurrent partial SBO due to radiation, induced terminal ileal stricture and phytobezoar.

Keywords:

Phytobezoar; Radiation stricture; Irradiated bowel
