Abstract

Bezoars are not as rare as we think. According to the literature, the bezoar mostly consists of hair, vegetables or fruits but other materials are also possible. Due to their growth they are responsible for up to 4% of mechanical intestinal obstruction. We are presenting the case of an 86 year old man with melena and a big bezoar in the stomach due to accumulation of polesterene.
