The Teaching Point

The clinical lesson in this case was that CT interpretation of foreign bodies may be difficult but is the most sensitive means of diagnosis. The differential diagnosis of foreign body must be borne in mind by clinicians, even when the history of ingestion is not recalled by the patient.

Abstract
We report the case of a 34-year-old previously fit and healthy male who presented to the accident & emergency department with non-specific abdominal pain. The patient proceeded to undergo laparotomy at which a large mass was found adjacent to the stomach. The impression at surgery was of a lymphoma or gastric carcinoma though CT had reported the likelihood of a fish bone or foreign body causing duodenal perforation. Histology later confirmed the presence of a fish bone surrounded by reactive tissue.
