Abstract


Bezoars are concretions of undigested material in the gastrointestinal tract and are most commonly found in the stomach. Antroduodenal localization of bezoars is exceptional; therefore, we report a case of a 40-year-old man who experienced recurrent epigastric pain following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a phytobezoar in the antroduodenal area, which was removed in its entirety via endoscopic fragmentation and piecemeal retrieval.
