Focus on: bezoars


A bezoar is a collection of swallowed
foreign materials that collect in the stomach
and are unable to pass through the intestines. Take a look at some case reports with amazing images that we have published in Journal of Medical Case Reports and Cases Journal over the past year on this unusual phenomena. If you have a question or comment for the authors, then please post a comment!
