Delayed dysphagia following foreign body swallowing: case report
Gastroenterology and Hepatology from Bed to Bench,
23 August 2021
The prevalence of foreign body swallowing is high in both children and adults. Different types of objects can be ingested. In older individuals denture ingestion is common. They may be left in the esophagus after being swallowed and then repelled.
Materials and methods
We present a case of a 62-year-old man who attended clinic due to dysphagia lasting for 5 years with an endoscopy report of a foreign body in his esophagus.
There are a few reports of the presence of these objects in the esophagus for a long time.
Chronic remaining foreign bodies may be associated with complications, so extraction of the foreign body, especially in elderly, should be made promptly following diagnosis.
