FISHBONE AS FOREIGN BODY GRANULOMA OF THE STOMACH MIMICKING AS SUBMUCOSAL TUMOR : - Two Case Reports

Aditya Prasad Padhy, Chinmaya Ranjan Behera

Abstract :

In countries where fish is a favoured dietary source of protein, fishbone accounts for the most commonly ingested foreign body that become impacted in the upper gastrointestinal tract and manifest indolently. As fishbones are usually radiolucent and thus usually not detected in X–ray film, however USG and CT highlight about their presence by a linear hyper density within the body tissue. We report two cases of gastric foreign body granuloma caused by an embedded fishbone that presented with upper abdominal pain. Investigations revealed an elevated lesion in the gastric antrum in both the cases, which was suspected to be a sub mucosal gastric tumour. Subsequent surgical resection showed that the lesion was caused by an embedded fishbone granuloma.
