  • Abstract  

    Introduction Bezoars are retained concretions of indigestible foreign material that accumulate and conglomerate in the G.I tract most commonly in the stomach. The term Bezoar comes from the Persian “pahnzehr” and the Arabic “badzehr” both of which mean counter-poison or anti dote. Bezoars can be classified into 4 types based on their origin and components: Phytobezoars, trichobezoars, lactobezoars and pharmacobezoars. Other rare, less frequent bezoars are unclassified and include materials such as plastic and metal.
