Mushroom Bezoar: Rare Cause of Small Bowel Obstruction, a Case Report and Literature Review
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Surgery,
Small bowel obstruction is a common acute presentation in any general surgical unit, however an obstruction secondary to a bezoar impaction is considerably infrequent. The diagnosis of small bowel obstruction due to phytobezoar pre-operatively remains challenging. We present a case of small bowel obstruction caused by shiitake mushroom phytobezoar which was successfully treated with a laparotomy and enterotomy with foreign body removal. Intraoperatively undigested shiitake mushrooms were found.
