Esophageal bezoar on peptic stenosis in a 7-year-old child

ABSTRACT

The term bezoar refers to foreign bodies found in the digestive tract. It results in a stagnation of ingested non-digestible substances. We report a case of an esophageal bezoar collected in the pediatric gastroenterology department of the children's hospital in Rabat- MOROCCO. This observation of an esophageal bezoar, the first in our institution, to our knowledge, confirms the rarity of the pathology. 7-year-old child, taken by his parents to the children's hospital of the university hospital in Rabat for total aphagia. His history shows: psychomotor retardation, followed for 2 years for peptic esophagitis complicated by peptic stenosis.
