Ingested Foreign Body Causing Duodenal and Colonic Perforations in a Child

Dileep Garg, Aditya Pratap Singh, Sunil Kothari

Abstract


Most ingested foreign bodies usually pass uneventfully through the gastrointestinal tract. Few may cause complications and require surgical interventions. We report a 1.5-year-old child who ingested hair clip and presented with vomiting and obstruction. At operation, we found duodenal and colonic perforations. Hair clip was removed with repair of perforations.
