Abstract

6 cases of gastric phytobezoars were seen on fiberoptic gastroptic over a period of 4 years during which time 1 400 gastroscopies were done. 4 cases showed complete resolution of bezoars on repeat endoscopy during a follow-up period ranging from 2 weeks to 1 year. The experience shows that, in the absence of gastric outlet obstruction, small bowel obstruction or other serious problems due to bezoars, they may not need surgical or aggressive medical treatment.
